This is a very rare original etching by American sporting artist Frank W Benson. The image size is 7 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches, published in 1921 in an edition of 100, cat: Ordeman-205, pencil signed, titled in the lower margin. There is some old masking tape residue in the margins, but this is outside of the image area and will be covered by a window mat. This print is quite scarce, and an unusual subject for Benson; in most of his images the landscape serves as a backdrop for wildfowl or hunters but in this etching he focuses on the land and river, creating an atmospheric summer scene.

This remarkable etching is one of Eby's finest prints, and is featured on the front cover of the Giardina catalog. The image size is 8 5/8 x 15 5/8 inches, published in an edition of 100 in 1931, cat: Giardina-168, pencil signed "Kerr Eby imp", the 'imp' indicating that Eby printed this impression himself.

This is a gorgeous original lithograph of ancient Greek ruins by Joseph Pennell, from his series "In the Land of Temples", based on his travels through Greece and Italy. The image size is 16 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, published in 1913 in a very small edition of 50, printed on a watermarked wove type paper, pencil signed. In his book "In the Land of Temples", Pennell writes of this print "Swept away is everything, mysteries and all— all that remains is the great pavement on which stand the stumps of columns; yet I doubt if it was finer ever. And the long drive out over the sacred way, the long, quiet day; and the long drive back, with the Acropolis growing more and more majestic in the twilight, were perfect."

This is a very rich impression of a great sporting etching by Frank Benson. The image size is 9 x 11 inches, published in 1918 in an edition of 150, cat: Ordeman-131, pencil signed and numbered "6". This etching is titled "Marshes at Evening" in the Ordeman catalog, although it is titled in the artist's hand on the lower margin as "Evening in the Marshes". In his catalog of Benson's prints, Ordeman quotes John Taylor Arms, who said of Benson, "[He] has achieved the distinction of founding a school- that of the modern sporting artist. In this, his followers and imitators have been many; his equals none." In this image, a flock of ducks come into the marsh to roost, silhouetted against the still bright sky of a midsummer evening.

This expressive drypoint etching of ducks taking flight by Frank Benson was published in 1918 in an edition of 150. It is pencil signed on the lower margin. This image measures 7 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches with wide margins on a sheet size of 12 1/2 x 15 3/8 inches. Benson was a very successful painter and a member of "The Ten" along with Childe Hassam and J. Alden Weir, before he began his sporting paintings and etchings for which he is most widely known. In 1912, at the age of 50, Benson began his etchings and drypoints, mainly of wild fowl which he depicted with expressive lines and rich toning that exquisitely captured the life and energy of the wild birds. His etchings were in high demand from the very start, and have remained favorites for collectors ever since. He was a founding member of the Boston Guild of Artists and a long time teacher at the Museum School in Boston.
