A set of fantastic, medieval etchings of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza by acclaimed artist Irving Amen. He's known for his prints but was also a sculptor and painter, and taught at both the Pratt Institute and Notre Dame. Please see the Irving Amen website for more information. These are wonderful, sepia-toned etchings featuring stylized depictions of Don Quixote (numbered 22/200) and Sancho Panza (numbered 45/200). This type of subject matter was very typical of Amen's work - there are a number of different Don Quixote etchings he did, but have only seen this Sancho Panza one.
The etchings are set in older Kulicke metal and wood frames with glass fronts. Both are signed in pencil "Amen" and numbered with the titles. This elegant pair of prints would look great hanging on the wall of various different room styles, such as a study, library or den.
In good vintage condition, with no damage to prints that we can see. Glass appears good, maybe a bit of wear and some dust and debris. Frames have some scuffing and scratches. Reverse of frame is open, and framing tag on each has significant wear.
Measures about 17 by 21 inches each. Printed area is about 12 by 17 1/2 inches each.
