Kerr Eby, American, 1889-1946, "Driftway, Moonlight". This remarkable etching is one of Eby's finest prints, and is featured on the front cover of the Giardina catalog. The image size is 8 5/8 x 15 5/8 inches, published in an edition of 100 in 1931, cat: Giardina-168, pencil signed "Kerr Eby imp", the 'imp' indicating that Eby printed this impression himself. This image is one of several landscapes Eby made depicting his house in Westport, Connecticut and with it's rich tonal range and vivid contrasts, it is by far one of his most impressive images. This etching features a very richly inked impression on a medium weight watermarked wove type paper.
