Technique and condition

An old print of a botanical study, the plant has been impressed onto a soft ground and etched. It is printed on a cream wove, fine surfaced paper in sepia ink.

The print already foxed, has been drawn over by the artist with coloured crayons, graphite pencil, black chalk and gouache paint. Surface marks caused by handling are evident.

On acquisition the print was framed in an aluminium L-section frame.
