  Rare: New Listing
  George Loring Brown   (1814-1889)

  VIEW OF PALAZZUOLO, LAKE ALBANO, 1853. That is the title given by Leavitt. Brown signed and titled this in pencil: "Convent of Palazuolo." Pencil signatures are very rare on G.L. Brown etchings. This is number 5 in his Roman Campagna set. A few etchings in the set were reprinted elsewhere, but this one was not, hence its extreme scarcity. Brown used ruled lines in the sky and water, a technique discarded by etchers in the 1880s. Note the tiny figures of two men and a horse in the center foreground, a stylistic device not used in the later etching revival. The extreme isolation of this convent on the rocky bluff is highly dramatic. In very good condition.
  Etching, 4 3/4 x 7 inches. $2000.
