  Ellen Oakford   (active 1880-1890s)

 
  TWILIGHT, ca. 1887. Pencil signed, on Japan paper. Exhibited at the N. Y. Etching Club, 1888. See: Peet, American Women of the Etching Revival, High Museum, Atlanta, 1988. The many talented women etchers of the 1880s are being rediscovered and with this evocative image Oakford clearly deserves to be in that group.
 
 
  Etching, 6 5/8" x 10 3/4". $400.
