Description This original, limited edition etching, was realized by the esteemed American artist John E. Costigan, circa 1930. He is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum, the Philips Memorial Gallery in Washington and the Brooklyn Museum, to name only a few of the many institutions that feature his work. This print, with its highly considered composition and its loose style of figuration- deftly balances realism and abstraction- helps to explain his acclaim. This piece depicts a family enjoying leisure time on a grassy Knoll. The father walks with two of his children astride, while the mother holds up an infant. There is a young girl jump roping and a haystack in the background. This is pastoral scene with all of the elements of a bygone and fabled American past- filled with wholesome family activity. It is rendered in a style that recalls the work of the Modern American master Thomas Hart Benton. We have three more pieces from this series available for purchase for $4475. The work is signed by the artist bottom right. The pieces are in the original portfolio and have never been framed. Excellent condition.
