A private moment captured by master etcher Winkler, who stood in a Paris street sketching straight onto the printing plate with a needle.

In a quirky game of cataloging “telephone,” our copy of this print was labeled as “Marchande Endorme,” a simple typographical error. The record went into our database, however, as “Marchande Enorme,” which seems an unwarranted editorial comment. The record has now been corrected.
