This is an attractive original etching made by George Percival Gaskell (1868 - 1934).

The subject is a view on the Venetian island, Torcello. The view looks along the riverside towards the buildings (the Basilica and Bell Tower) in the distance. It is certainly a more restful scene and far removed from the hectic tourist sites in Venice. This view dates to the early 1920s - and it has not changed much until this day - you can easily make an excursion here from St Mark's Square.

This etching is a rare one by Gaskell - and even the British Museum does not have an impression of this etching in their collection. It is listed at a very fair price.

It is pencil signed below.

Dimensions: Image is 17.5 x 23 cm ; The frame is 35.5 x 52.5 cm.

Please note: The price quoted here is from the artwork only.

The frame comes free with this artwork. Any damage in transit to the frame / mount / picture glass will not be subject to any refunds, discounts or re-framing costs from us.

Gaskell was born in Shipley, Yorkshire. He was educated at Leys School, Cambridge and subsequently studied at the Royal College of Art London, and then in Paris and Italy.

He was a lecturer in the history of art at Oxford, Cambridge and London Universities; from 1896 until retirement in 1930 was headmaster of Regent Street Polytechnic, London.

Gaskell exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of Painters Etchers..., Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Royal Society of British Artists (elected member 1896) and at the Paris Salon. He was also a member of the Art Workers' Guild.

Gaskell died in Hampstead in 1934.

Dimensions: Image size 22 x 24.8 cm. Frame size is 47 x 43 cm.

The frame is in excellent condition- the window mount is a dusky print tone - which certainly enhances the dark tones of the print.

Please note: The price quoted here is from the artwork only.

The frame comes free with this artwork. Any damage in transit to the frame / mount / picture glass will not be subject to any refunds, discounts or re-framing costs from us.

A work of museum quality - an impression is the museum of New South Wales in Australia.

The postage quoted here is for delivery in the UK with Parcelforce48, tracked and signed for. It will be very carefully packed to arrive in pristine condition.

We could post this unusual Venetian view outside of the UK - but we would have to remove the glass from the frame to allow us to post to you. Please ask for more details.
