Haig, Axel Herman (Sweden, 1835-1921. STOCKHOLM: THE FLOATING MARKET (Armstrong 61, illustrated following page 106). Etching, 23 3/4 x 15 3/4 inches; 605 x 400 mm. Edition of 350. Signed in pencil lower right. A magnificent impression of this extraordinary print, printed in umber. In excellent condition. Very nicely framed, with new archival matting. "A view of Stockholm Harbour, with the floating market being conducted on rafts and boats in the foreground...and the background is formed by houses rising one above the other on the hillside, while above all is the lofty dome of the Church of St. Catherine. This subject...forms one of the most striking of Mr. Haig's etchings of his native country. It is one in which he has introduced many figures, the busy life of the floating market being in reflective contrast with the tranquil dignity of the background." (Armstrong, Axel Herman Haig and His Work, London, 1905).
