Color etching titled at lower left "St. Philips Charleston, S.C.". signed in pencil just outside the plate line at lower right by the listed English-born artist who worked in a number of geographical areas of the United States, LEON PESCHERET (1892-1971). States in which the artist worked include Louisiana, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Wisconsin (where he lived for quite some time), Illinois, and notably, Arizona and the Southwest. This is a fine etching by a talented graphic artist who was especially known for the advanced color etching techniques seen in this print. He also worked in oil, watercolor and sculpture, but it seems that the etchings are responsible for his art legacy. Pescheret was a member of the Chicago Society of Etchers and the Palette and Chisel Club of Chicago. This example appears to be in very good condition (not examined out of the frame), the cream color paper normally toned with time. Measurements are 12" by 9 1/4" inside the mat, 20 3/4" by 17 1/2" as framed. A very attractive, sharp print of always popular and desirable Charleston subject matter. If this imagery were by the better-known South Carolina etchers Elizabeth O'Neil Verner, or Alfred Hutty, the price would be into four figures; the quality is comparable, but the market values the artists differently.
