By Swiss artist Richard Ranft (1862-1931) is this Antique artist Print from the 1901 edition of the British Studio Magazine..
Entitled 'Salut de L'Ecuyer' (Salute to the Horsewoman)..this is the second Circus themed work by Richard Ranft I have listed in my shop (see also NN219).
They both feature a talented horse woman...although this one is a little more risqué than the other. And is in a more comical style with the addition of a jolly clown.
Signed in the plate lower left and bearing the blind stamp of Authenticity for the Studio Magazine bottom right, it measures 11 1/4" x 7 3/4".
It has the original tissue cover and is in Very good Antique condition.
The Studio was a fine arts illustrated Magazine published in London from 1893 to 1964. International in concept, it presented the work of artists and designers to a wide audience.
