  William Merritt Chase   (1840-1916)

  SPANISH PEASANT, 1883. Signed in the plate, and printed in black ink on etching paper, as published in the New York Etching Club catalog, 1883. This is Chases's small version of his large etching that was included in the Club's annual exhibition. Each year 8 (9 in 1883) artists were elected to create a small etching after their large one--it was an honor to be so chosen. This is a magnificently etched image in fine condition.
  Etching, 5 7/16 x 3 inches. $400.
