Christmas Card Etchings by Richard Bishop

Richard Evett Bishop (1887-1975), a Philadelphian, was originally trained as an engineer. His first etching was published in 1920 using an old wedding invitation copper plate. Bishop, a consummate artist, did his own sketching, etching, and printing. He also mastered the difficult technique of aquatinting. In 1936, Bishop's image "Canada Geese" was honored by being selected for the 1936-37 Duck Stamp. This was subsequently made into the first published Duck Stamp print. Bishop specialized in bird studies, and his prints convey the grace of movement and natural beauty of his subjects.

Bishop Christmas cards are all approximately 4 x 6; unless otherwise noted. Unsigned, except as noted.
