An etching featuring cattle driven through a wood in a storm, 3 1/2" by 5 1/2" inside the mat, 8 1/2" by 10 1/2" in interesting simple wood frame with hand cut design, the work by noted American artist PETER MORAN (1841-1914). The title is "Showery Weather", and the print was issued in the year 1889. Moran was the youngest of the well-known Moran brothers of American art (Thomas, and Edward). He was born in England and was in the United States by 1844. Through most of his life he worked in the east, painting many subjects of the Pennsylvania countryside, from his base in Philadelphia. He also traveled to the frontier western United States, to New Mexico, as early as 1864, and then made repeat trips there. His New Mexico paintings, drawings and prints are rare and especially prized. Condition: Not laid down, nor signed, but as shown in final images, there is old glue staining in the margins, all covered up by the mat so cosmetically, purely from a viewing standpoint, the etching is perfect.
