"Egyptian Archer," Fabulous, Rare Art Deco Gouache Painting by Rookwood Master

$3,500Asking Price


Rich with pale shades of plum, slate gray and pink, this rare gouache painting was made by William Hentschel, one of the master artists at the famed Rookwood Pottery in Cincinnati. Here he depicts a stylized, semi-nude male figure in Egyptian dress, very much in the Art Deco manner, pulling the drawstring of an enormous bow aimed at a flock of waterfowl overhead. Hentschel mastered this particular form of painting, which involved airbrushing gouache on paper, and this is one of the finest and rarest we have ever seen. (Dimensions include matte and frame).
