This is a very fine original etching by Scottish artist William Strang. The image size is 9 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches, published in 1883 in an edition of 60, cat: University of Glasgow-35, pencil signed below the image, titled and inscribed 'first plate' in the lower margin. A very classically styled composition of a biblical scene, this etching features a rich impression with nice plate tone.
