  Rural Life
  Thomas Waterman Wood   (1823-1903)

  FRESH EGGS, 1883. This is the small version by Wood of the large etching he exhibited at the NY Etching Club in 1883. It was an honor to be invited to contribute one of the eight etchings published in the catalogue each year. This genre image of life in rural Vermont shows a trip to the barn each morning to gather fresh eggs for the day, a job assigned to a young child. After eight years of training in Europe, Wood returned to the USA and had a successful career as a figure and portrait painter, and his paintings and prints also were a clear exposition of life in rural Vermont. A crisp impression in very good condition.
  Etching, 6 x 3 3/4 inches. $125.
