Pencil signed etching, 8 1/2" by 6 1/2" inside the mat, 15 1/4" by 12 1/4" as framed, titled at lower left "The Arts and Crafts Courtyard", (and edition number there given as "100"), the subject the famed and often painted Brulatour Courtyard in the French Quarter, by the well listed Arizona and southwestern painter and art educator GERRY PEIRCE (1900-1969). Peirce was born in upstate New York and educated at the Art Students League and the Cleveland School of Art. Evidently he kept heading west and ultimately settled in the Tucson, Arizona area, establishing the Gerry Peirce Watercolor School. A man of many talents, he was also an etcher, illustrator, and children's books author. One encounters his finely etched prints of Southwest subject matter with some frequency but this is the first New Orleans subject matter I've encountered. Peirce's works are in the collection of the Museum of New Mexico, Tucson Museum of Art, and Arizona Historical Society, and he is listed in many reference works. The work is in excellent condition. .
