Untitled - Zebra mother and baby. Clara TICE.

Untitled - Zebra mother and baby

Etching with hand coloring. Signed in pencil at lower right. Image measures 3.75 x 6". Folded sheet measures 6.5 x 10".

This original print by New York artist Clara Tice depicts a mother and baby Zebra. Made in 1921, the image shows the pair in mid-run. You can almost feel the protectiveness of the mother as the baby zebra gallops besides her. Tice has depicted the various stripes on the zebras' fur with a mix of precision and spontaneity that complements the dynamic lines composing their bodies. The print is in excellent condition with no chips and tears. Textured edges from original thick paper. Signed by artist in pencil.

Clara Tice (1888-1973) was an American illustrator and artist who lived in Greenwich Village during a time of avant-garde artistic activity. Although somewhat well-known for her erotic drawings and prints of nudes, as well as her bohemian lifestyle, she remains relatively obscure within art history more generally. This image from her mother and baby series from later in her life speak to her personal passion for animals. Her book "ABC Dogs" was likely inspired by the many dogs she owned and cared for throughout her lifetime. This delightful print provides insight into the artist's personality and stirs the heart of its viewer at the same time.
