Germany: np, 1914. Kuhnert, Wilhelm. No Binding. Wilhelm Kuhnert, who painted during the late 1800s and early 1900s, is considered one of the greatest animal painters ever. He produced a number of etchings, virtually all of which are highly sought after to this date. Offered herewith is his beautifully executed LION (a lion next to his buffalo kill), an original signed etching reportedly limited to 60 etchings. This one signed but not numbered. Ref. p 54 in The Animal Art of Wilhelm Kuhnert. Image size 13 1/8 x 19. Plate size 13 3/4 x 19 1/2 Double matted with an extra gilt wooden inner liner. 19 5/8 x 23 1/2. Splendidly framed in raised gilt size 24 1/2 x 28 3/8. Very sharp contrast of the lion against the background with a softer touch on the dead buffalo head on the left. A beautiful example of a Kuhnert lion etching. Substantial additional postage required (especially for outside the US). Fine. Item #4423
