  Walter Satterlee   (1844-1908)

 
  THE EVENING STAR, 1884. Signed in the plate. This fantasy imagery is similar to the subjects of Frederick Stuart Church, although Church never showed a bare breast. The title alludes to any very bright planet seen in the west in early evening, especially Venus. The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, NY, owns 5 other Satterlee etchings, all in the same mood as this one. There are 6 more inches of the woman's figure not shown in my photograph: the rest of her legs wrapped in the swirling fabric of her long robe, with her bare feet exposed. Printed in blue ink, and in excellent condition. DETAIL.
 
 
  Etching, 13 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches. See above.
