Original Percival Gaskell drypoint.

Very fine proof impression with strong, fresh burr, from the only published edition.

The artist has imbued this gentle Italian landscape with a serenity which is characteristic of his picturesque drypoint views. Percival Gaskell’s naturalistic handling breathes an air of restrained elegance into this scene creating a mood of timeless beauty distinct to his work.

On cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edge. This particular proof comes directly from the artist’s residual estate and is in very fine original condition.
