About this Item

Etching showing the head of a dozing cat in profile. Above him, a dream floats: a small mouse, enclosed in a circle partially formed by its own tail. Executed with exquisite detail and full of character, from the mouse's slightly frightened eyes to the cat's regal but lazy bearing. Tinted using a gray wash, with the mouse highlighted in pink. Monogrammed in the lower left. Cream matting. A very fine example of an early Detmold etching, of which few impressions were ever printed. (Etching measures 5 3/8 by 5 3/8 inches). (Dodgson, Print Collector's Quarterly, Vol. 9, p. 398, #47). Bookseller Inventory # 25900
