Etching, soft ground, and stipple engraving, 11.9 x 12.4 cm (plate line), on paper 218 x 210 mm. Signed and dated by Norman Lindsay 1922 lower right, titled lower centre, numbered in an edition of 55 copies; framed.

This miniature gem has been one of the most instantly recognisable examples of Lindsay’s oeuvre for nearly a century. The bargain struck between the beautiful young nude (modelled after Rose Lindsay, the artist’s wife) and Pan can only be imagined, but her assortment of rare jewels and diaphanous silks suggests the price must have been high. A fine original etching by Norman Lindsay.
