This is an original color etching by American artist Dorsey Potter Tyson.  The title is: The North Gate.  It is hand signed in pencil and numbered as 58/100.  The image measures 7 7/8X5 3/4 inches.  Framed. "Dorsey Potter Tyson's highly decorative original colour prints appear, at first glance, to be colour printed etchings, which have then been extensively coloured by hand. They are in fact, the result of skilful colour printing alone, using a technique which effectively combines the printing of a normal etching simultaneously with that of printing a monotype. The lines of the etched design, which compose the basic image art inked with black printer's ink, and the surface of the plate is then cleaned in the manner used for printing a normal monochrome etching. Thick, coloured printer’s inks are then painted onto the surface of the plate using a brush as though painting a plate for a monotype printing; the proof is then printed at one pull through the press. This is a very time-consuming method of colour printmaking" (Campbell)

This is a very fine original etching by American expatriate artist Walter MacEwen. Image size 6 x 4 inches, c. 1910, pencil signed. Born in Chicago, MacEwen traveled to Europe to study art, first in Munich with Frank Duveneck, then in Paris with Corman and Robert-Fleury. He stayed in Europe for many years with studios in both Paris and Holland, where he was also a founding member of the Egmond Artist Colony. Primarily a painter, MacEwen was known for his impressionistic portraits and genre scenes which were quite well received in both Europe and America. His etchings, which are quite scarce, are developed in a very painterly style, reflecting the delicate use of light and shadow of his paintings.

This is a very fine etching by Warren Davis, image size 7 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches, printed in an edition of 150, signed within the plate, with the title and edition in pencil below the image. This etching is in pristine condition, printed on a cream colored watermarked Rives paper with ample margins. Warren Davis studied at the Art Students League in New York and became known for his etchings of idealized female figures, many of which were used on the covers of Vanity Fair and Life magazines. Later in his career Davis exhibited in Europe and the United States including the Pennsylvania Academy and the Salmagundi Club. This image is a great example of Davis' use of delicate lines and simple compositions to elegantly capture the beauty of the female figure.

A fine original etching with colors by Elyse Ashe Lord, this image measures 13 1/4 x 16 1/8 inches, edition of 75, hand signed and numbered in ink. Elyse Lord lived her entire life in Britain and although her work shows a strong Asian influence, she never actually traveled the continent. Her inspiration instead came from Chinese literature, artwork and her own imagination. Her unique style uses fine drypoint lines and delicate, yet vibrant colors to create images that that have a serene, almost dreamlike quality. She was a member of the Society of Graver-Printers in Colour and the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and showed her work in many exhibitions including at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Royal Scottish Academy, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, and the Paris Salon.
