British artist Herbert Johnson Harvey’s (1884-1928) etching of an old Gypsy woman with a black cat. Pictured in a highly detailed etching, the woman has a warm, smiling face and a wide-eyed black cat on her lap. Her face is much like the portrait of the woman in his etching entitled, Old Nan. The print has been reframed with an archival mat and backing, the original framer’s label has been attached to the rear frame backing. Identified by the framed, Frederick Keppel & Co., Inc., New York as a signed artists proof, there is nothing that leads us to believe this is a proof, but instead an original, numbered artist-signed etching.
