PENCIL SIGNED J Knowles Hare etching SHIRLEY TEMPLE 30s

ABOUT THIS AUCTION: For sale is a very rare pencil signed and titled print by famed American Printmaker John Knowles Hare (1884-1947). This image is of silver screen icon Shirley Temple, holding a doll and her terrier on a leash

According to : "...Later, he (Hare) specialized in etchings. One of themwas titled “PALS” and it is of Shirley Temple with her doll and dog. His “Sympathy” was a picture of a small boy crying over an injured puppy."

SIZE: etching plate shows at 8.5 by 12 inches. Original frame suggests full margins.

ACCURATE CONDITION REPORT: superb condition: Amazingly, this print has no foxing and absolutely no mat burn. Original 1930's frame shows some wear.

WHY YOU SHOULD BID ON THIS: You can find Hare's etchings fairly easily, but we have never seen one that is ACTUALLY PENCIL signed by the artist. Even his "plate signed" etchings sell in the hundreds or for more, depending on subject matter. This is an extremely rare etching.
