Cypress and Olive   1926

  Original drypoint.
Signed and titled in pencil.
S 415 x 253 mm; P & I 200 x 148 mm
Original Percival Gaskell drypoint.

Very good 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. One unobtrusive horizontal crease, otherwise very fine original condition.
