I am selling this superb etching of a resting hunting hound (based on its collar and mindful that Reinhart was a keen hunter), but still very alert (judging from its watchful eye), for the total cost of AU$276 (currently US$188.52/EUR177.42/GBP156.21 at the time of this listing) 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 spectacularly fine etching of a dog—note the touch of a master artist to visually “explain” the form of the dog and, importantly, the subtle play of its muscles under the skin—please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
