Sea Storm with Dutch vessels by David Charles Read

Sea Storm with Dutch vessels  

  Original etching.
Ref:  R.W. Read 22 (1874 catalogue in B.M.)
S 118 x 153 mm; P 104 x 141 mm; I 104 x 138 mm
Original David Charles Read etching.

Very strong, early impression with bright contrast and exceptional clarity of line. One of the more dramatic of D.C.Read’s seascapes, Sea Storm with Dutch vessels displays Read's debt to the Dutch etchers who preceded him.

On firm laid paper, with margins. Generally very fine original condition.
