Etching titled in pencil at lower margin "Springtime", pencil signed at lower right by the National Academician artist, JOHN EDWARD COSTIGAN (1888-1972). The print measures 10" by 11 3/4" inside the mat, 17" by 19" in modern day gold frame. Costigan was known for his sympathetic portrayals of what he knew and loved best, the people and countryside of upstate New York, where he lived on a farm in Orangeburg. A native of Providence, and an orphan, he was moved to New York City, where he learned about art principally while working for a lithography firm making theater posters, though he did attend the Art Students League for a short time. By the 1920's and 1930's Costigan had received national recognition for his talents, the Smithsonian sponsoring a 1937 special exposition of his works. John Taylor Arms, the famous etcher, acknowledged Costigan's talents in the graphic arts. During his lifetime, Costigan received widespread recognition, including status of National Academician, and today his paintings are handled by the finest galleries and auction houses nationwide. This image reflects the themes for which is work is best known---the joys of motherhood and childhood, and respect for animals and the land, which he believed sustained the cities. This small family walks through a thin forest, with lambs and sheep as companions. Condition is good. .
