- Curator's comments
- This etching is related to Bauer's illustrations for a Rumanian folk tale translated into French by W. Ritter under the title: 'La jeunesse inaltérable et la vie éternelle.'
This print is similar to that used as an illustration for the book (see Wisselingh 283). The catalogue entry for the present print (Wisselingh 95 notes) "Intended for 'La Jeunesse' but not used." 'Romance'

- Acquisition date
- Acquisition notes
- Taped inside a card mount, inscribed: "Marius Bauer 1864-1932. Romance etching." Numbered on the back of the mount 17735 circled. The format of the number suggests that the print was purchased from Abbott and Holder.
The number 45 is written in large pencil letters inside the mount.
Further annotations and numbering on the sheet (No 95, Romance, R// A45441.) are likely to be the stock number of a previous dealer.
John Christian retained a list of 'Miscellaneous Drawings and Prints' sold by Taranman (Sept-Oct 1974) which includes an impression of this print.
