Etching, signed in pencil, with Japanese-style ornament heightened with gold. 260 x 175mm, 10¼ x 7".
A hawk perched on branch with left wing raised and extended. The ornament features a dandelion. An early plate, issued the year after his first etchings. Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957) and his twin Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908) were twins and child protegés who worked very closely together until C.M. Detmold committed suicide in 1908. Traumatised, Edward produced only one etching in the next fifteen years, returning to the art only in 1923.
