William Ablett Drypoint Etching*
Framed original drypoint and aquatint etching in the ‘Boudoir’ style by the English artist William Albert Ablett (1877-1937) of a young woman seated with her small dog beside her.
It would seem that the dog has just picked up and brought to her the letter she’s holding and is now looking expectantly up at her, ears pricked and waiting for a reward.
It’s a charming scene and she’s a very Deco girl with her short bob and skimpy short dress, so typical of the fashion of the day.
William Ablett lived and worked in Paris, having studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Art. He was a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur and a member of the Royal Academy.
Dating from the 1920’s with an overall size of 64 X 49 cm. The condition is good with just a few small marks to the paper.
