Item Details

Russell Reeve, RBA, RE 'Caparica, Portugal'

An original etching with aquatint, pencil signed by the artist lower right, titled 'Caparica, Portugal' lower left, numbered 7 from an edition of 50 etchings only, and with a dedication to two friends of the artist. Caparica is situated to the south of Lisbon, between the capital and Setubal. Although not dated we have had previously had similar Portuguese etchings by Reeve dated 1960. This work is likely to be from around that date. The etching is in good condition although not examined out of the frame, which appears to be the original. There are several sailors depicted in this image and they appear to us to be wearing the uniforms of Royal Navy personnel. We have other works available by this artist, please enquire or see our website.

About 10.8 x 14.8 inches plate size and about 18.9 x 22.9 inches framed size

The price is inclusive of delivery to Great Britain mainland. Please enquire of us for shipping costs to other destinations.
