This is a beautiful original drypoint etching of a flock of sheep taking shelter from a blustery winter day by American artist R. W. Woiceske. The image size is 9 3/8 x 14 1/8 inches, published c. 1940 in an edition of 50, pencil signed and titled. Woiceske was born in Bloomington Indiana and studied at the St Louis School of Fine Arts and at the Artist Colony in Woodstock, NY with Birge Harrison and John Carlson. He was involved in the WPA, and became known for his atmospheric etchings of snowy winter scenes. He was a member of the Philadelphia Print Club and the National Association of Etchers.
