A pair of French boudoir drypoint and acquatints by the art deco artist – William Ablett (1877 – 1936).
Signed in pencil and bearing the foundry stamp for 1926, along with text showing the original copyright and printer/publisher.
William Ablett was of English heritage but lived and worked in Paris, having studied at the Ecole des Beaux Art. He was a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur and a member of the Royal Academy. He was a contemporary of Louis Icart who’s style was very similar.
Here we have a pair of the more famous of his etchings – the flapper girl with a blue parasol and the other with a girl reading a magazine.
Each framed in their original frames.
They each measure 26.5 inches (67cm) high and 22 inches (56cm) wide.
In good vintage condition.
