The Edge of the Lake by Percival Gaskell

The Edge of the Lake  

  Original aquatint.
Signed in pencil.
S 246 x 335 mm; P 158 x 227 mm; I 146 x 227 mm
Original Percival Gaskell aquatint.

Very fine signed proof impression from the only edition.

It is in this form of tranquil aquatint that Gaskell excels. The Edge of the Lake demonstrates this artistís unrivalled gift for interpretating nature at her most enchanting moments. The fine aquatint ground and superb, painterly technique which Gaskell has employed on this plate have combined to produce the impression of the finest monochrome watercolour.

On smooth cream wove paper with full margins. Very good original condition.
