Ice River Country
1884-1954, American

A great sun-drenched western scene, this etching measures 12 3/8 x 10 3/8, published in 1936, pencil signed, dated and titled. Palenske was equally an outdoorsman and an artist, spending much of his time out riding and exploring the western wilderness. His etchings reflect his great love of the outdoors, as in this image of two riders pausing to look up at the rugged mountain terrain.

A Pair of Florals
1900-1971, British

This is a beautiful pair of floral still life color etchings by Elyse Ashe Lord. The image size of each is 9 x 7 inches, edition of 75, c. 1940s, pencil signed and numbered, in matching Asian styled period gilt frames, likely the originals. 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.
