You don't have to be a pheasant hunter to appreciate this circa 1935 print of a brown and black setter who has just flushed a pheasant from the high grass. Published by the Paris Etching Society, the print is pencil signed by the listed American artist, Paul Wood, at lower right. Wood (1897-1964) created a number of similar scenes in watercolor and his favorite aquatint. The works often include or feature dogs. During this period, the etching and aquatint technique achieved new creative heights in Europe and America. The print on wove paper is in excellent condition. Note the French mat, hand executed gold border around a tan band bordered in lilac.
Measures in mat 8 1/2" by 6 1/2 and 15" by 13" framed.
