Carcassonne (?): pour Gustave Arthur Dassonville, c. 1972. These etchings evoke the rustic, pastoral landscapes of southern France, bathed in soft sunlight. Folio. Loose as issued in cloth portfolio with paper label. Additionally there is a title/justification leaf (signed by Gustave Arthur Dassonville, for whom the edition was printed) with an eleventh etching, and another signed proof of that etching (so 12 etchings in all, of which 11 are full-page, loose, signed, and justified). Very rare (only 20 sets were printed: 1-15 and I-V).
