Cracknore Hard by David Charles Read

Cracknore Hard   1831

  Original etching.
Ref: Read 97
S 102 x 223 mm; P & I 97 x 218 mm
Outstanding presentation proof impression given by the artist to the Earl of Pembroke. The freedom of D.C.Read’s handling allowed him to achieve an expansive openness in his coastal landscapes, perfectly demonstrated by this fine view of a ferry station in Southampton estuary.

On fine wove paper, with thread margins, tipped at corners to original backing sheet, as prepared by the artist himself. Very fine original condition.
