Zebra Finches - WINIFRED AUSTEN
Medium: aquatint printed in colors
Aquatint printed in colors, circa 1940, edition unknown; perhaps 50 impressions. 6 7/8 x 9 5/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine, luminous impression with wide margins. The condition is excellent. Austen is best known for her bird and animal etchings and she did not start working in color until about 1930 or so. She was quite successful during her lifetime and was elected to the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1907. She produced some two hundred etched plates but most are in black and white.
