Value of an old print by L'hermitte

Resolved Question:

value of an old print by L`hermitte

Good day, my name is ***** ***** assuming that you have a print by: Léon Augustin Lhermitte (1844 - 1925). The value any work of art is based on the standing of an artist, the type of work. Painting being the highest, then Sculpture, watercolor/drawings then prints.With prints the subject and how well it is done. Lastly the condition. Can you send a photograph of the print?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Tim,
Thanks for your response - it is signed in the bottom left corner "L. Lhermitte" so I am assuming it is him as other signatures I have seen are the same. I am not great at technology but will try to get a picture over to you in the next couple of days. It depicts a woman drawing water from a well and talking to a an agricultural worker. We are about to move house and found this in the attic after 25 years ! The print itself looks to be in good condition although the background mounting is scruffy. Not expecting a miracle but thought that I would ask as I know that some of his works are in major galleries.
Best regards
Geoff

Hi Tim, No colour, looks like the original may have been done in charcoal.

Geoff, it is most likely an etching. Which is a process where the artist draws on a prepared metal plate usually copper. Acid eats into the exposed lines to deepen the lines. The plate is then inked and press on to paper. There should be an indentation around the edge of the image. This creates a black and white print that resembles a charcoal drawing. Etchings by the artist have sold art at auction for: £110 for 11 3/8 in x 8 1/2 in prints and £404 a larger print 39 in x 49 in.

Hi Tim, This one is 14 6/8 inches x 10 6/8. It also has an additional illustration ( 2 inch x 6/8inch ) on the card below the print. Looks like a couple of fish !! I will get you a picture and thanks for the assessment.
Best regards
