I am selling this very beautiful engraving (with etching) of a farmers’ market in an early stage of preparation with a resting shepherd and his cattle in the foreground and rural folk enjoying themselves at an inn shown further back—note that my reading, of the scene may be wrong and is based on my translation of the title: “The Market to Do”—for AU$198 in total (currently US$125.18/EUR126.90/GBP109.99 at the time of posting this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
