Description This original, limited edition etching, was realized by the esteemed American artist John E. Costigan, who 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. The etching depicts a family in the field milking their cows. The father bends down to milk an utter, while the mother holds an infant in her arms. In the midground, the viewer sees the back of a young boy seated on a stump. This is a classic country scene rendered by one of the nation's great pastoral artists. High style deco is proud to offer three more etchings from this series. The entire suite can be purchased for $4475. This piece would be equally well suited hung individually or with the other works. Printed on archival paper. Signed bottom right. The pieces are in the original portfolio and have never been framed. Excellent condition.
