Christ in a Storm by David Charles Read

Christ in a Storm   1829

  Original etching.
Signed and dated in the plate.
Ref:  R.W. Read (1874 catalogue in B.M.) 50
S 80 x 96 mm; P & I 66 x 80 mm
Outstanding early impression with bright contrast and exceptional clarity of line. D.C.Read made only a very few subject etchings on biblical themes of which Christ in a Storm is by far the most dramatic. Etched on an almost miniature scale this striking work demonstrates D.C.Read’s considerable abilities to convey both detail and movement in a confined space.

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