Yellowlegs in Sunlight - FRANK BENSON
Drypoint, 1928, Paff 285, edition 150. 9 7/8 x 7 3/4 in. Initialed and dated in the plate. Signed in pencil, lower left. This is a superb impression rich with burr. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's an ever so slight suggestion of toning within an early mat opening.) This beautiful print shows Benson as a master of the drypoint medium. He was a gifted watercolorist and this print displays the painterly characteristics of a Japanese brush painting.
