[Owl] by George Edward Collins

Original G.E. Collins etching.

Very fine signed proof impression from the only edition.

This finely handled etching of an owl demonstrates how George Collins took particular care to portray the natural charateristics of a given species of bird, rather than just depict its detailed appearance.

On cream laid paper, watermarked St. Crispin, with full margins.
