More About this Item


Description: WALT KUHN [1877-1949]. American painter. An ORIGINAL COPPER etching plate. The title is "MORNING". Typical Kuhn style. Plate size 4 x 6 in. This plate still has some life in it and etchings could be pulled from it. Very seldom does an original etching plate by an important artist ever reach the open market, as they usually are in institutional collections. Provenance: Kuhn Estate. It is difficult to get a good scan of this and the picture below isn't very good. He did not etch his initials or signatureinto the plate. I don't think he ever etched his signature into any of his plates although he sometimes would etch initials. This is guaranteed to be an authentic Walt Kuhn plate without a time limit to the original purchaser. We will send a letter of guarantee and provenance to the buyer. The portrait photo of Kuhn shown below IS NOT for sale. Kennedy Galleries [NYC] held an exhibition of Walt Kuhn prints during which it was indicated that there was only from 1 to 6 impressions ever pulled from this plate. Original plates by major artists seldom reach the open market and it is remarkable to see a plate that had so few prints pulled from it. A must for the SERIOUS Kuhn collector. Difficult to get a good scan of copper plates.Picture of Kuhn does NOT come with this plate.
