Beautiful drypoint etching by Ernest Haskell (1876-1925) entitled: “Lighthouse Pines #2 - Monterey”. He was best known in California for his etchings and drypoints of the Monterey cypresses. Born in Woodstock, Connecticut Haskell was referred to as "THE American etcher". A protégé and friend of James McNeill Whistler who taught Haskell to make etchings, his works hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. This print was handled by internationally recognized dealer Sylvan Cole of NYC who specialized in fine-art prints. It is in excellent condition and is beautifully French matted and framed. Signed by the artist below the lower impression line and also within the etching. Overall approximate dimensions: 15.5" wide x 13.5" high. Image approximate dimensions: 8" wide x 5" high. Interestingly, Haskell was commissioned by the U.S. Army to develop camouflage for disguising battleships and uniforms. Great gift idea for golf enthusiast, as reminiscent of the pines along the Pebble Beach shore line!
