This is a very fine etching by Stephen Parrish after a painting by Henry Ward Ranger. The image size is 18 x 23 3/4 inches, published by Klackner in 1887, cat: Schneider-124, with a remarque in the lower center margin, pencil signed by both Parrish and Ranger. In her description of this etching, Schneider writes that "there is a good match between the sensibilities of the painter, Henry Ward Ranger (1858-1916), and the printmaker, Parrish, so the result is a masterful etching."
