DESCRIPTION:  Reference: Dube R 546 I (of II). On yellow japan paper, with margins, in good condition (slight creasing in margins, upper verso margin skinned in places, slight ink and soil marks in margins as characteristic of an artist-pulled proof).

A fine atmospheric first state impression of this rare composition. In the second state the aquatint areas – the trees, mountains, shadows – were darkened with additional hatching; the figures given a bit more contouring.

Although assigned the title Two Standing Nude Women it appears possible that the figure at the left is indeed a man, and if so, quite possibly a self portrait of the artist himself. Indeed, this may be an Adam and Eve coupling, although the usual accompaniments (apple, snake, etc.) are not expressly evident. These conjectures must await further exploration.

PROVENANCE:  Unidentified collectors stamp lower left recto (circular, with lettering, number in center, not found in Lugt)
