  New Listing
  Frederick Stuart Church   (1842-1924)

  A SYMPHONY, NINETEENTH CENTURY, 1884. Signed in pencil. Printed in warm black ink on Japan paper. Signed and dated in the plate. This is an especially appealing fantasy subject--the curling vine enclosing the subject, with the empty space beyond, sets the figures in their own imaginary space. The banjo being strummed by the pretty woman for the adorable cherub is decorated with a tiny mermaid. Church never misses a chance to make his point. Beautifully printed, and in perfect condition, this is one of Church's best etchings.
  Etching, 8 3/4 x 12 1/4 inches. $450.
