Set of Two Throwbridge Gallery London Dog Etchings
Unlike typical art forms, etching was the more popular art medium during the mid-19th century. It consists of using acid to make marks in metal printing plates. This was preferred because unlike most of what was unavailable at the time, it showed stark contrast between light and dark lines. Each print features the side portrait of a dog with a picturesque background. The etchings are framed in a marbled border and then in black-painted wood. The prints have a title printed onto the front side along with the artist's signature. Originally priced at $1300 for the set.
