Print

Welcome!
1900-1971, British

A very fine original hand colored etching by British artist Elyse Ashe Lord, this image measures 15 7/8 x 13 3/8 inches, c. 1940s, edition of 75, pencil signed, numbered and titled. 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.

Drawing

The Old Peep Toad Mill
1854-1934, American

Watercolor on paper adhered to mat board, 8 x 10 1/4 inches, signed on the back and inscribed "Old Peep Toad Mill / North S[cit]uate, RI / Aug. 5, 1914." The town name is hard to make out, but there is an old Peep Toad Mill in East Killingly, Connecticut, not far from the Rhode Island state line. Hays had a studio in Providence, RI, and is known for painting bucolic subjects.
