"Cutting Fodder" a.k.a "Family in the Field" by John Edward Costigan 1938

Offered is a fine etching by well listed artist John Costigan (1888 - 1972). A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Costigan was interested in the continuance of nature and focused his work on genre and pastoral scenes set on his upstate New York rural farm. His work often highlights the joy of motherhood, security of childhood and a rapport with animals and nature. Costigan was devoted to the woods around his home and regarded the city only as “a market place for what comes off the land, be it livestock or art.” He was well known for the unity of his subject matter and the emotions his subject matter evoked. "Family in the Field" is a fine example of his artwork that often reflected the joys of motherhood and idyllic country living.

This original etching's plate mark measures 7 7/8" x 12 3/16", is pencil signed in the lower right, and is notated N.A. S.A.E. Print was published by the Society of American Etchers on cream laid BFK paper. Etching is in excellent condition. This print is offered in a fine mat professionally and archival mounted. Ready to frame and enjoy.
