Paul Brown Aquatints

Three Equestrian Aquatints
Brown, Paul. Derrydale Press, 1937.
“Music Ahead,” “Hoick!” and “Kennel Bound.” Images approx. 22 x 18 inches on handmade paper approx. 31 x 23 inches. Signed & numbered. In original burled maple frames with new acid-free matting. Probably wwould cost a bundle to ship as is, so buyer may prefer to just have the prints sent rolled. Good condition, maybe a little sun fading (only apparent if taken out of the mat). Seem to have been in frames since purchase. Print seller’s ticket on back of frames. Beautifully executed prints (these images don't do them justice), I’m just not that into horses. James Cummins has two of the three listed at $3,750, and a complete set at auction in 2012 got $2,000. These three $300 each, or $750 for the trio.
