Excellent impression of the completed etching, printed with selectively wiped plate tone to enhance the effects of light throughout the image. This view of the sun rising over Sierra de Almaden in Spain, is widely regarded as one of the finest of J.C.Robinson's etched works.

On fibrous Japan-style paper with margins, as prepared by the artist. Faintest unobtrusive foxing, otherwise very fine original condition.
