Old-Clothes Dealer

etching (1911)
The merchant stands at the threshold of her shop, her shoulders covered with a large shawl. While handling an object, she glances to the right. To her left, a small table, loaded with various objects. To her right, a motley collection: an armchair leaning on an easel bearing print boxes, under which a small stove is enthroned; books, a bust and, hanging from the door and the uprights of the shack, musical instruments, pots and pans, and clothes.
