[Child with Apple]
Etching with very large margins, platemark 160 x 140mm (6¼ x 5½").
Portrait of the artist's niece, Agnes Paul. Etched by the Scottish painter and etcher Andrew Geddes (1783-1844). The Oxford DNB states that 'as an etcher Geddes ranks higher than as a painter; his plates may be regarded as among the very earliest examples in modern British art of the brilliancy, concentration, and spirited selection of line proper to a ‘painter's-etching’'.
