A rare opportunity to acquire a work by the famed Pennsylvania Bucks County School artist, DANIEL GARBER (1880-1958); the fine etching "The Heron", the elegant bird placed in a mysterious landscape of overhanging trees. The print, plate signed at lower right and pencil signed by the artist at lower right margin, is titled in pencil at lower center margin, and at left margin he has written his initials "DG" and "Imp", meaning that the artist personally printed this example. Garber, Indiana-born, studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati with the so-called "Duveneck Boys". He went on to become a painter of the Delaware Valley landscapes in and around Bucks County. Today he is regarded as perhaps the most important painter of the region, and oils have brought to $1 million at auction (frequently mid and upper hundreds of thousands). He is best known for these beautiful impressionist masterworks, but he was also a talented etcher. Purchasing an etching is perhaps the only way to affordably acquire his work nowadays. This example, found in Monterey, CA, is mounted archivally to museum standards, according to framer information on backing. Generally clean, there is some age toning and very minimal foxing in the margins and some light browning from previous mat, at edges. Measurements 6 1/2" by 7" inside the innermost mat, and 15 5/8" by 16 1/4" in narrow black older strip frame. Not examined out of frame.
