BUSH, Reginald Edgar James [1869-1956]

“Village, Cornwall”

undated

color etching / 6.3 inches x 3.7 inches

R.E.J. Bush showed his work at galleries and exhibitions in London, Paris and Rome, but he also exhibited in the U.S. (St. Louis, Chicago, and Los Angeles). “Cornish Village” may have been shown at the Saint Louis World’s Fair of 1904— “Meet me in St. Louis, Louis. Meet me at the Fair.” —but its frame also bears a sticker suggesting it had been sold by Marshall Field & Co. in Chicago.

This evocative small etching came to the collection in 1959 from the estate of Miss Rose Kavanagh, long-time principal of Charles Darwin Elementary school.
