Etching, 1909-10, Novák 158, Baker 83, 198 x 219 mm. Fine impression printed in brown on imperial japan paper with full margins, signed in pencil but not numbered; faint paper discoloration in the area of the old mat opening. The impression is either a proof before publication or one of the thirty impressions on japan from a total edition of 250. Simon, whose work has come to be re-appreciated recently, due largely to the efforts of Frederick Baker, was a native of Bohemia, but achieved his first successes with color etchings of Venice and Paris, and he settled in Paris in 1903. He was a peripatetic traveller, though, and frequently returned to Prague where, in 1909-10, he produced a portfolio of 25 monochrome etchings of many aspects of that beautiful and architecturally fascinating city.
