R.H. Palenske Dog Etching, Black LabradorR.H. Palenske Dog Etching, Black LabradorR.H. Palenske Dog Etching, Black Labrador

Striking etching from 1956 portfolio published by Brown & Bigelow from art work Palenske produced while he worked for them. This one is depicts a black labrador in the upper right portion of the image area, and at the lower left is the dog carrying a pheasant in its mouth. On tissue paper overlaying the print is a passage from George Graham Vest.

"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in the this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and sickness. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings, and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens."

Palensky was an exclusive artist for Brown & Bigelow for many years. In 1944, the Chicago Society of Etchers awarded him their top honor, and his works are in many public and private collections including the Smithsonian Institution. This work on heavy paper shows the plate marks and is 12.25" x 16.50".
