Here is an original aquatint with coloured inks, signed and titled in pencil


It is not dated but we think it an early Priddey and therefore around 70 years old. no foxing or other blemishes and is now remounted using museum quality board, so to last another 70 to 100 years. It has a 'Warwick Galleries, Artists Proof' blind stamp lower right. This magnificent piece is quite big for a Priddey and measures 325 x 400mm.
