"Boy and Horse", by Rene Sintenis, (German, 1888-1965)
Drypoint, 1923, Ed. undetermined, 8-11/16 x 6-9/16, signed in pencil, on buff laid paper with full margins. Sintenis was primarily known as a sculptor, but her strong, reductive drypoints focus on our engagment with both animals and each other. Though rendered with just a few lines, the emotional strength and depth of her involvement with her subjects comes through.
