Etching, image size 6 7/8 x 12 7/8 inches, 1940, plate signed and dated, hand signed and numbered "XXXVIII" in ink.

Rocky River

$975.00

This is a very rare original etching by American sporting artist Frank W Benson. The image size is 7 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches, published in 1921 in an edition of 100, cat: Ordeman-205, pencil signed, titled in the lower margin. There is some old masking tape residue in the margins, but this is outside of the image area and will be covered by a window mat. This print is quite scarce, and an unusual subject for Benson; in most of his images the landscape serves as a backdrop for wildfowl or hunters but in this etching he focuses on the land and river, creating an atmospheric summer scene.

Flooded Decks

$975.00

This incredible image by the British etcher, Arthur Briscoe, measures 8 1/8 x 15 3/8 inches, inked signed and numbered, 73/75, created in 1931. Briscoe studied at the Slade Art School and the Academy Julian in Paris and then spent the rest of his time sailing, becoming one of the most prominent British marine artists of the 20th century. He owned his own three ton cutter which he used to sail around the Essex coast. Also crewing on a Polish ship, he sketched every aspect of life on the boat. Most of Briscoe's etchings show sailing ships and the men who sailed them. His beautifully etched images present an invaluable historical record of the workings of the last great commercial vessels.

The Lobster Fisherman

$975.00

This is an original etching by American modernist artist John Marin (1870-1953) The title of this work is "The Lobster Fisherman". It was created and printed in 1948. This is a rare pencil signed early proof. The image measures 8 3/4X7 inches. This etching was later reprinted in a large unsigned edition. Nice use of plate tone in the sky and sea.
“From 1899 to 1901, Marin attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. In Philadelphia he studied with Thomas Pollock Anshutz and William Merritt Chase. He also studied at the Art Students League of New York.[
In 1909, Marin held his first one-man exhibition at Alfred Stieglitz's 291 gallery in New York City. He had been introduced to Stieglitz by the photographer Edward Steichen. Marin's association with Stieglitz would last nearly forty years, and Stieglitz's philosophical and financial support would prove essential.[5] From 1909 until his death in 1946, Stieglitz showed Marin's work almost every year in one of his galleries.[6] Marin also participated in the landmark 1913 Armory Show.[3]
Marin spent his first summer in Maine in 1914 and almost immediately the rocky coast there became one of his favorite subjects. Over the rest of his life, Marin became intimately familiar with the many moods of the sea and sky in Maine”

The image size is 16 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, published in 1913 in a very small edition of 50, printed on a watermarked wove type paper, pencil signed. In his book "In the Land of Temples", Pennell writes of this print "Swept away is everything, mysteries and all— all that remains is the great pavement on which stand the stumps of columns; yet I doubt if it was finer ever. And the long drive out over the sacred way, the long, quiet day; and the long drive back, with the Acropolis growing more and more majestic in the twilight, were perfect."
