Old English Horu - Tibiteau Cherry
1900-1971, British

This beautiful color etching by Elyse Ashe Lord measures 11 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches and is pencil signed and numbered. French matted and 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.
