Vintage print of etching by Beth Van Hoesen, self portrait of artist with image reflected in eyes, matted for framing, 8 x 10 inches



This is a vintage print of an etching by Beth Van Hoesen (1926 – 2010) who was a prominent American artist and acknowledged master of drawing and printmaking.

This etching is called "Self-portrait" and is a beautifully rendered sketch of the artist's face with two faces reflected back in the pupils of her eyes. The image is black on pale cream paper - not white as it appears in the first two photos.

The print has been placed onto a rigid backing board with an off-white mat board at the front of the print.
The mat and backing boards measure 8 inches by 10 inches / 20 by 25.5 cm - perfect for slipping into an off-the-shelf frame.
The visible part of the print measures 7.5 inches by 5.5 inches / 19 cm by 14 cm.
The third photo shows the print matted - the true colors are pale cream print paper and off-white mat board.

The print was published in 1972 in a limited edition book of reproductions of intaglio prints.

The print will be placed into a plastic cello bag and rigid mailer for postage.

You will receive the original 1972 print, not a copy.

The item will be posted with Australia Post's airmail service.

If you purchase more than one item, postage will be combined wherever possible and any over payment of postage will be refunded.

Returns and exchange details

If a buyer wants to seek a refund, the buyer must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving the item.
I will refund if you change your mind about the item - the cost of the item only, not the postage costs. The item must be returned to me in the same condition it was sent.
If an item is damaged in transit to such an extent that it can't be used, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost paid by the buyer. If the item is slightly damaged, but is still usable or repairable, I will discount the price. I will require proof of damage - an emailed photo will usually suffice.
If an item is lost in transit, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost.
If an item with a tracking number tracks as having been delivered and you didn't receive it, you must take this up with the carrier. The carrier won't allow me to do this on your behalf.
I will refund if the item is not as described. I may ask the buyer to return the item to me. In that case, I will pay for the cost of postage both ways as well as the cost of the item. If the buyer would like to keep the item at a discounted price, I will negotiate a price with the buyer.


Please don't ask for a discount. I probably won't respond to your request.

All of the goods I sell are vintage and most will have had prior owners. For this reason, they are likely to show some signs of age or wear. This is normal and I will only mention specific issues that I think you should know before deciding to purchase.
