  George Loring Brown   (1814-1889)

  VIEW NEAR ROME, 1854. Signed, titled and dated in the plate. Brown made a set of nine etchings of scenes in the Roman Campagna, an area especially favored by American landscape painters in the mid-19th century. Brown was one of the few artists also making etchings of the views: this is number nine in the set which has been documented by Thomas W. Leavitt in George Loring Brown, an exhibition catalogue for the Fleming Museum, Burlington, VT, 1973. This is a brilliant image printed in the 1880s on chine collé, in mint condition.
  Etching, 6 x 8 1/2 inches. $900.
