Description: Drypoint. Signed in ink. Image measures 6 x 16".

Comments: This charming drypoint print shows a polo game in action, with four men on their horses chasing after the ball that is rolling toward the left side of the page. The player at the far left appears about to hit the ball with his mallet, while the other players battle to catch up. In the background, a row of spectators stands on the shady sideline. The beautiful effect of the drypoint technique is in full evidence here, particularly in the grassy field and the silky coats of the horses. The print is in excellent condition with full margins and no chips or tears. Paul Desmond Brown (1893-1958) is one of the most well-respected illustrators and artists of equestrian sports. An avid fan of polo, hunting, and horse racing, he turned his passion into a career, publishing over 30 books and illustrating countless other books and periodicals. His most prized skill was his ability to depict horses in motion, enabling him to faithfully record the action of the game. This beautiful print exemplifies the talent for which Brown was famous.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties...

Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
