Print

Chevaux au Repos

This is a beautiful original 19th century etching, possibly after a painting by French Barbizon artist Charles-Francois Daubigny. The image size is 7 3/4 x 5 1/8, unsigned, on a watermarked laid type paper. There is an inscription in French in the lower margin attributing this etching to Daubigny, but we were unable to find this image in the catalog of Daubigny's etchings.

Drawing

The Gathering Crowd
1881-1939, American

This is an original ink drawing on paper, image size 6 7/8 x 11 inches, 1933, signed and dated in the lower right corner. Hopper Emory was born in Baltimore, Maryland and had a successful career in banking before he turned exclusively to his artwork. He traveled to England where he studied at the Heatherly School of Art in London, then returned to Maryland where he became known for his delicately rendered architectural and maritime etchings.
