    Jacques Villon collaborated with Maximilien Luce to produce this aquatint after the oil on canvas by Luce titled La Tamise à Londres, 1892 (Jean Bouin-Lude and Denise Bazetoux 1025). In 1922 Villon was commissioned by Galerie Bernheim-Jeune to produce a series of color aquatints after 38 major 19th and 20th century paintings by artists such as Matisse, Renoir, Manet, Picasso, Cezanne, Dufy, Modigliani, Bonnard and Luce amongst others. These hand-pulled editions provided the public with access to works which otherwise would not be available.
