Description: Fine original etching of the beautiful Cumbria lake region in England. Specifically, this etching shows a view of Ullswater, the second largest lake at 7.5 miles long, on average 3/4 mile wide and with a maximum depth of 205 feet at Howtown. It has three distinct bends giving it a dog's leg appearance. I'm not exactly sure of the vantage point but it should be easy enough to figure out for anyone familiar with the lake. This etching looks to date from the early 20th century. A label from J. J. Gillespie and Company, Fine Art Galleries, is present on the verso. A remarkable example of a talented and gifted etcher's work. Well framed, original frame and matting, original backing is unopened. Ready to hang.
Condition: Very good, no problems noted. Has not been examined out of the frame
