|This hand colored etching is part of Alkenís series called ďSome Do and Some Donít: It is All a Notion (date 1820). Alken is a famous English painter and engraver. He lived from 1785 to 1851. This is one of four framed etchings from this series that I have up for sale. The frame size is 20.25 inches by 16.5 inches. The size of the etching showing through the matting is 11.5 x 7.75 inches. The total etching size should be 8.75 x 11.8 inches but I have no what to determine that as the print is framed. As with each of the four prints this one is very funny and humorous. It is ready to hang on your wall and enjoy. As you can see in the pictures the etching is somewhat faded. From what I can tell they were framed in the 60ís or 70ís by the Anderson Ė Krapp Art Supply Company in Grand Rapids. I found an old advertisement from this company from the 1960ís and they are no longer in business.|
