Other Notes: Henry Emerson Tuttle is considered one of America's greatest twentieth century etchers of birds. Tuttle was educated at Yale University and attended classes in art at the Slade School, in London. First pursuing a scholastic career, he created his first published drypoint engraving in 1925 at the age of thirty-five. His initial works of art in this medium were so widely received that Tuttle dedicated himself solely to his art from that point on.
Under glass and image appears good.
