Ian Strang (1886–1952)
“Puente Nuevo Rondo, Spain”, 1923, possibly from a posthumous edition with the ink estate stamp at lower left and numbered in pencil 1/10 at lower right. Note that I have seen another copy of this print also bearing the estate stamp showing an edition numbered with 40 impressions suggesting that there is an inconsistency in the numbering or that there may have been more than one edition.
Etching on heavy wove paper with the ink-stamp of the estate at lower left and numbered in pencil “1/10” at lower right.
Size: (sheet) 32.9 x 28 cm; (plate) 25 x 22.3 cm.
The British Museum offers the following description of this print: “View from below of stone bridge built across ravine, town on cliff to right. 1923/ Etching” (https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/P_1960-0409-516).
Condition: a strong and near faultless impression in near pristine condition with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions, losses, stains, foxing or signs of handling.
I am selling this very fine etching showing the artist’s remarkably consistent style where surfaces in strong light are rendered with vertical strokes and areas in shadow are hatched with largely horizontal strokes, for AU$352 (currently US$243.84/EUR230.84/GBP198.72 at the time of posting this print) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
If you are interested in purchasing this meticulously fine rendering of the Puente Nuevo bridge spanning the rock faces of the El Tajo gorge that divides the city of Ronda in Spain’s Malaga province, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
