Original Stephen Gooden line engraving.

Beautiful impression of one of Stephen Gooden's most charming engravings. Produced as an independent plate and not as an illustration or bookplate, this meticulous engraving was issued in only one edition of 50 signed and numbered proofs. Inscribed in pencil by the artist 24/50 Stephen Gooden ARA. 1940.

Excellent signed proof impression with particularly fine, sparkling line. Mouse is one of the finest examples of Stephen Gooden's remarkable ability to portray the character of an animal in a beautifully composed gem of line engraving.

On cream laid paper with margins. Faint mat line in outer margins, otherwise very fine original condition. Image surface excellent.
