Axel Herman Haig (1835-1921) - Early 20th Century Etching, St Mark's Cathedral
DescriptionAn atmospheric etching of the interior of St Mark's Cathedral in Venice. Strong, shafting light picks out the pulpit and the shadowy figures in the foreground give scale to the size of the cathedral. The artist has monogrammed within the plate and signed in pencil outside of the plate. There is an inscription of the publisher's date and address at the top of the plate and the original copyright at the bottom. The etching is on wove laid to board. Signed. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. Faint mount burn outside the plate lines. Six small pieces of tape have been stuck outside the plate lines on three sides.
