R. H. PALENSKE - Drypoint Vintage Lithograph -Wild Horses Fighting. Here is a fabulous vintage picture that was created and SIGNED by the artist: R.H. PALENSKE. Print is TITLED: BATTLE FOR LEADERSHIP.
His illustrations are created in a black and white simple coloring. I believe they call these Dry Point Lithographs or Talio-Crome. Makes it even more realistic in the classic pictures he produces with animals, man, and situations in nature. This should appeal to the avid nature collector. Dates approx. the 1930s-1940s. The lithograph is a nice large size, slight age toning of paper. Nice quality heavier paper stock.
With outer bordering measures 16 x 15-1/2. The image only with the title at the bottom measures: 10-1/4 x 12.
Great portrait of these fabulous horses that are truly powerful . Greatl illustration of two of these animals on their hind legs lashing out at each other for male domenance. In the background are the rest of the herd waiting to what will happen.
Is pen SIGNED in lower right bottom edge "R. H. Palenske" and pen TITLED at lower left "BATTLE FOR LEADERSHIP". Print has been securely stored flat all these years, has never been matted nor framed. WONDERFUL CONDITION. No foxing, No stains. There are some very precise *cuts* in the print, as shown in our photos for you. They are clean even, and once framed up would not be noticible. (One by smaller group of horses at the base of their legs, a larger one going through the artists signature, and another one on lower left corner that is in border and could be trimmed away.
