  Frederick Stuart Church   (1842-1924)

 
  IDYLL, 1888. (Seated Girl, and Cupid on a Tiger.) Etching, ed. 215, pencil signed on Imperial Japan paper, with remarque. Church was especially loved for his playful depictions of animals, children, and pretty women. He was praised by contemporary critics for his imagination, and one modern writer has compared Church to Odilon Redon in his use of "fantasy." A rich impression in mint condition.
