Eisbahn
1875-1943, German

This original etching by Paul Paeschke measures 6 1/4 x 8 3/4 inches and is pencil signed. Paeschke studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin under Karl Kopping. He traveled extensively through Germany and other European countries. He mainly depicted the busy inner-city streets of Berlin and other cities and so he became an important chronicler of public life during the early 20th century. Paeschke created numerous masterly etchings, which can equally be placed next to the graphic works of Max Liebermann, Max Slevogt or Lesser Ury.

Harvard Medical
1883-1979, American

This beautiful etching of the Administration Building at Harvard Medical School by Charleston artist Elizabeth O'Neill Verner measures 10 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. Done circa 1925, it is pencil signed on the lower right margin. Known for her love of the Lowcountry surrounding Charleston, with its images of swamps, fields and local wildlife and urban scenes with its unique characters, she captured the spirit of the south. Verner initiated the founding of the Charleston Society of Etchers and is considered the matriarch of the Charleston Renaissance, which flourished during the 1920s and 1930s.
