This tiny oval French etching depicts a field with a French village with church steeple beyond and a tree overhanging the foreground, in its original frame. It is a classic French rural scene repeated throughout the countryside. Aquatint and etching give it wonderful detail and it has pale washes of yellow, pink, and green ink. Signed. Hanging ring attached to back.
Dimensions: approx. 10.5 cm x 12 cm x 1.5 cm / 4.25 in x 4.75 in x .6 in
These pieces wear their history like all vintage pieces which only adds to their story. This etching is in wonderful condition with some discoloration of the paper from age and a faint water stain on the top. The frame has some chips adding to its character and the right plaster ridge has been repaired with glue at some point (see pictures).
