JOHN BRUNSDON RE - Grand Canal, Venice. Large aquatint etching from a series of commissioned works on Venice from the late 1970s by the highly sought after John Brunsdon RE. This one is titled Grand Canal and is in remarkable striking and contrasting colours.
Signed in pencil, titled and numbered 34/150. 60 x 45 cm image size, 84 x 71 cm framed size.
Photographed in its gilt frame and mount (occasional light wear), the print appears to be in excellent condition, possibly some light but even time toning around the margins up the mount, hard to tell, but not apparent in any case in its frame and mount.
