One of two works by the artist in my shop, this is an etching on paper, 8 1/2" by 11" inside the mat opening, 20" by 15 1/2" framed, signed in pencil at lower right margin "PHILIP KAPPEL", and titled at lower left margin "West Indian Grandeur---Haiti". This is a fine etching of a figure on the coast balancing a load on her head as she gazes out to sea at a clipper ship in full sail, a coconut palm leaning exotically at left. This print is by a well regarded artist most associated with Connecticut, where he was born and where he died. Kappel's work includes a wide variety of subjects in painting and the graphic arts. He traveled in the Caribbean and Mexico, but derived most of his subject matter from the New England area. Kappel worked in Maine and in the Gloucester/Cape Ann area. Many, if not most, important East Coast museums have examples of his work. This piece was framed in Hartford, Connecticut, according to the framer's label. Condition appears excellent (not examined out of frame). I would suggest discarding the non-glare glass, which dulls detail (all photos were through this so allow for that).
