Description: Fine impression on fairly thick wove paper trimmed inside the platemark but with large blank plate margins all around the image. In the bottom plate margins, at the left, is an etched remarque of a river scene. The plate is signedAppian in the plate and signed in pencil M. Ducey (or Dacey). This is the oddest thing about the work because while other impressions have borne the same signature, still others, of the identical print, have carried the pencil signature R. Minot. What is certain is that the work is of the American etching revival, when copies of Barbizon works were common, and that this prit apparently derives from a painting or drawing by Appian. It is not a copy of any Appian etching or lithograph.
