Peacocks (oblong plate) - CHARLES M. & EDWARD J. DETMOLD
CHARLES M. & EDWARD J. DETMOLD
British, (1883-1908 & 1883-1957)
Etching, 1905, Dodgson 8, only state; edition unknown. 3 1/8 x 6 1/2 in. Signed in pencil by Edward, lower right, and signed in pencil lower left, M.D. (by) E.J.D. This is a fine impression in fine condition with full margins. The paper is a cream-colored sturdy Japanese paper. This collaborative etching by the twins is the companion piece for Dodgson 10. Very few impressions were printed in 1905 and this one dates from the 1920s when Edward reprinted a small edition and signed both their names. Their work was very much in demand at the time and today the Detmold etchings have many admirers.
