[Two peacocks standing near creeping foliage.]
Etching. Signed. 80 x 165mm, 3¼ x 6½".
Etching, signed with the initials of Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908) & Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957) as artists and with the full signature of Edward as etcher. The Detmolds, twins and child protegés, worked very closely together until C.M. Detmold committed suicide in 1908, three years after this etching. Traumatised, Edward produced only one etching in the next fifteen years, returning to the art only in 1923.
Guichard: p. 35, 'Peacocks was their most remarkable piece of collaboration', possiblly referring to this plate.
