Original Percival Gaskell aquatint.

Excellent impression of this enchanting aquatint, from the only edition of 150 signed proofs, published by Reid & Lefevre in 1929.

It is in this form of tranquil aquatint that Gaskell excels. Percival Gaskell possessed an unrivalled gift for interpreting nature at her most enchanting moments - On the Lake of Thun is one of the most picturesque embodiments of these moods. The power of this work is through its quiet understatement, using the most simple of design to wonderful atmospheric effect.

On cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edge. Very fine original condition. Image surface excellent.
