The Passage
(state iii/iv)

This state now carries the inscription “A Holyday Rain Storm and Music” which does not appear in the first state. For this impression, Buhot used a Japanese paper which has a more golden tone and a slightly slick surface that diffuses the ink and creates lines that are less crisp than those of state i.

The Passage, 1879–1885
etching, drypoint, roulette, aquatint, and soft-ground etching on japan paper, state iii/iv
