The Fisherman

This is a rare etching by British artist Sir Francis Seymour Haden.  This etching and drypoint is titled: The Fisherman.  It was created and printed in 1864.  Hand signed in pencil which is quite rare for this image.  Printed in a warm toned ink, the image measures 5 1/2X8 7/16 inches.  This etching is the 5th state of 5 with extensive use of plate tone in the water and sky.  Haden was an avid fisherman, and apart from doing etchings and being a well respected surgeon, he spent his spare time fishing across Britain.  This etching is matted and framed.
