Artist: Russell Reeve, RBA, RE
Title: 'Viano do Castelo' - a pencil signed original etching; unframed
Description: An original etching with aquatint, pencil signed by the artist lower right, titled 'Viano do Castelo' lower left, numbered 3 from an edition of 50 etchings only, and with a dedication to two friends of the artist. Viano do Castelo is situated about 50 miles north of Porto in Portugal. Although not dated we have had previously had similar Portuguese etchings by Reeve dated 1960. This work is likely to be from around that date. The etching is in fair condition for its age. There is some time staining to the edges of the image from old framing. The sheet also appears to have been trimmed at the margins at some point.
Size: About 8.5 x 12.0 inches plate size and about 11.1 x 14.7 inches sheet size
