Color etching, circa 1940. 276x354 mm; 11x14 inches, full margins. Signed and titled in pencil, lower margin. A superb, richly-inked impression of this extremely scarce etching.
Pescheret (1892-1971) was born in England to French parents and emigrated with his family when his father became a chef to the British Ambassador to the United States. He attended the Art Institute of Chicago and trained at the Chicago Society of Etchers in the late 1920s. Pescheret began visiting Tucson in the early 1940s and soon became a well-recognized figure in the southwestern art scene. His color etchings of desert views from the southwest, as well as a handful of images of Mexico and Hawaii, are among his most sought after works.
