Robert G. Wathen (1910-1988) is not a "listed" artist as such, but there is just a bit of internet information on the artist. He exhibited at the Speed Museum in Louisville in 1934. This etching was likely created in the 1930's or 1940's. The signature in pencil was a challenge to decipher, but luckily the artist included his name in the plate at lower left in a tiny rectangular box. Vintage art by Kentucky artists is quite scarce. Paul Sawyier is the best known of the lot, perhaps, and others are deserving of more recognition. Obviously the present artist was quite skilled. The print is unframed and shows normal evidence of its age including modest oxidation of the paper, mat browning and some tape remaining at upper right corner. Measurements of the sheet are 9 1/2" by 13".
