Scottish Etching of Whitewater Rapids by MacWhirter and Macbeth, 1896
Original 1896 framed and matted etching of whitewater rapids in Glen Affaric River, in the Scottish Highlands. This is an antique print, not a modern copy. Dynamic image with rocks, roiling water, spray in the air around the corner. Image size 6.5 x 9.75. Exceptionally fine lines of the engraving, are not quite visible in our photo. A nice piece for someone who is fond of Scotland or of whitewhater!
