This is a very fine hand colored etching by British artist Elyse Ashe Lord. The image size is 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches, c. 1930s, edition of 100, pencil signed and numbered, framed. Elyse Lord lived her entire life in Britain and although her work shows a strong Asian influence, she never actually traveled the continent. Her inspiration instead came from Chinese literature, artwork and her own imagination. Her unique style uses fine drypoint lines and delicate, yet vibrant colors to create images that that have a serene, almost dreamlike quality.
