A color etching of houses in mid winter in Hungary, signed below the image at right by Hungarian listed artist ISTVAN ELESDY (1912-1987). The artist, trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest, is known for watercolors and his graphic art. This print is laid down (affixed permanently) to a soft cardboard. There is some water staining at the edges and foxing/discoloration in the very wide margins but that can be easily matted out. The image portion itself is clean and in excellent condition. On the reverse is a circular official rubber stamp (usually an export stamp) in violet ink, and some pencil writing in Hungarian. Measurements are 15 1/2" by 18 1/2". There is an inexpensive frame with it, in poor condition; I suggest shipping unframed.
