  Woman Etcher
  Edith Penman    (1860-1929)

  [AN OLD ORCHARD], 1890. Signed in pencil. Klackner copyright 1890. The round fomat is unusual, but effective, as if looking at the scene through a telescope. London born, Penman trained at the Cooper Union, NYC, 1879-80. She was an active painter-etcher from 1887 until 1926, and her work was included in exhibitions such as at the Columbian Exposition, the NYEC, the NAD, and many others. Largely forgotten, her etchings were featured in the landmark exhibition, "American Women of the Etching Revival," 1988, at the High Museum, Atlanta. Bears a blue Klackner stamp, 7117, in the lower left corner of the sheet. In perfect condition.
  Etching, 6 7/8 inches diameter. $350.
