Notes

*Edition, states and Color: The best surmise is that the formal edition of this print is the second state in an unnumbered edition of hand-colored impressions -- although one unobserved impression is reported to have been numbered as one of an edition of 30 impressions. The hand colored impressions are signed and dated, just to the right of center within the image, (See Fig. 1 above.). The first state is neither numbered nor colored and is variously annotated: One is signed, l.l., and annotated, l.r., "second proof--first state." (See Figs. 2-3 below.) Another is neither signed nor dated and is printed from a canceled stone (See Fig. 4 below). Yet another, not pictured, is signed but not dated--etc. For more about Fiene's color prints in general, click here.
