Signed Etching by Charles Cain.

An etching with drypoint, printed on hand made wove paper with a partial watermark which appears to be ‘Whatman’ which is dated 1919.The etching is signed and titled in pencil by the artist. The original print still retains a rich burr from the drypoint and delicate details of a bridge of boats. Unsure about the date, possibly circa 1930 or possibly earlier by the paper watermark. The sheet does have some light sporadic foxing and has a collector’s ink stamp ‘NG’ in lower right corner, two tape hinges to top margin,else very good.
