ORIGINAL 1930 ETCHING by Morgan Dennis: Its a Wise Child. Pencil signed inscribed


Awe how cute! You just have to love Morgan Dennis sensitive portrayal of little Scottish Terriers.

This is a genuine original etching by him, which is pencil signed by the artist and inscribed in pencil with the title below the image.

The etching was made in 1930.

Morgan Dennis (1892 1960) was an American illustrator and author, who was best know for his images of dogs.

He was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in Long Island, New York.

He was commissioned by the Black and White Scotch Whisky Company to illustrate their iconic brand

the Black and White Scotties.

This was a very successful advertising campaign and it ran for many years.

One of his murals, The Dog House, is still in situ in the bar and lounge of the Sheraton Russell Hotel in New York.

This lovely image show an adult Scottie Dog looking down knowingly at a little puppy.

He kinda says thats my boy, and indeed the etching is entitled: Its a Wise Dog Who Knows his Father!

Platemark: 10 x 13.7 cm Frame size: 37.5 x 32.5 cm This is a guaranteed original etching with etched fuzzy, acid bitten lines and the indentation of the platemark on the edge of the image

A slight discolouration to the paper but presented nicely enough and with a relatively fresh beige tone mount, and simple black frame it is ready to just hang on your wall for display.

As I have photographed through the frame glass you will see a couple of reflections on my photographs dont worry these are not on the print…
