Note of Interest: This well established Ameri-Canadian artist lived to be 103 years old and was still involved in fine art until her final years. Her hand-pulled prints possess an abundance of the raw, simplistic beauty and solitude of Canada's flora and fauna wilderness; this is the type of subject matter that astute art lovers continually seek when it comes to hand-pulled prints from the early to mid 20th century.

This is a particularly hard to find, low numbered edition, aquatint etching by 'Newie' Priest, and one that you can say displays an appealing similarity to some of the etchings by members of the 'Group of Seven' and members of other 20th century 'Modern Movements'.
