  Peter Moran   (1841-1914)

 
  A NOON DAY REST, 1877. Keppel 19, Library of Congres 19. Moran used domestic animals in landscapes or barnyard settings from the start of his career as our leading American "animalier." He made this etching after his own watercolor that had been shown in the 1878 Water Color Exhibition in NYC. The etching recieved the honor of publication in 1880 in the AMERICAN ART REVIEW, edited by S.R. Koehler, the short-lived but most important art publication in the USA in the 1880s. The peaceful co-existence of horses, dogs, and chickens in this rustic barnyard is a philosophical statement. Printed on satin, and in exceptionally good condition since satin often has a poor survival rate.
 
 
  Etching on satin, 3 5/8 x 5 3/4 inches. $175.
