Frank W Benson, American, 1862-1951, "Rocky River". This is a very rare original etching by American sporting artist Frank W Benson. The image size is 7 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches, published in 1921 in an edition of 100, cat: Ordeman-205, pencil signed, titled in the lower margin. There is some old masking tape residue in the margins, but this is outside of the image area and will be covered by a window mat. This print is quite scarce, and an unusual subject for Benson; in most of his images the landscape serves as a backdrop for wildfowl or hunters but in this etching he focuses on the land and river, creating an atmospheric summer scene.
