Engraving by Cornelius Tiebout (1770-1830) after Stuart, image size 20 1/8 x 13 inches, sheet size 25 x 18 inches. This engraving is after the "Landsdowne" portrait, named for the British nobleman who commissioned the original painting by Stuart. It was first published by Tiebout in 1801.

Study of Hooded Figures
1890 - 1951, Vienna

Ink wash drawing, image size 14 x 16 inches, pencil signed and dated '43. Tischler studied at L'Academy de Vienne under Franz Rumpler, and exhibited his work throughout Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, at museums in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and Vienna.


Spanish Dancer
1900-1971, British

A dynamic etching in colors, image size 13 3/8 x 12 1/2 inches, c. 1940s, edition of 75, pencil signed and numbered. 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.
