Artist: Dolf Rieser
Title: The Birds of War - An original pencil signed etching with engraving from 1949; unframed
Description: This scarce and powerful Post War original etching with engraving is pencil signed by the artist lower right and editioned lower left number 18 of 45 prints only. It isn't titled or dated on the print but we found the information on the website dedicated to the artist's work. The etching is on a full sheet with deckle edges. It can be framed as it is but this print really needs a light clean after removal from the old paper backing board. A previous owner has stuck the sheet to the backing board at the edges so that about half an inch to one inch of the width of the paper is stuck down on three sides (the top edge is not stuck at down). The printed image and most of the margins are not stuck at all. The etching is priced to reflect the cost of the work required to put it in good order.
Size: About 11.8 x 15.4 inches image size and about 15.5 x 19.7 inches sheet size; unframed
