Peacocks (upright plate) - CHARLES M. & EDWARD J. DETMOLD
CHARLES M. & EDWARD J. DETMOLD
British, (1883-1908 & 1883-1957)
Etching, 1905, Dodgson 10 (vi/VI); small edition. 7 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Signed in pencil by Edward and also initialed M.D.(by) E.J.D. This is a fine impression published in the 1920s by the Sloane Gallery, London. The paper is a sturdy cream-colored Japanese paper with wide margins. The condition is very good other than a very faint suggestion of toning within a previous mat opening. Both artists worked on the plate but very few impressions were printed in 1905. Maurice (Charles M.) died tragically in 1908. Only ten etchings were produced by the twins where they both etched the plate. They are quite remarkable prints and not very common.
