Description: Portrait of Chief Justice Harlan Fiske Stone (1872-1946). Original etching signed in pencil by the artist Franklin T. Wood (1887-1945) master graphic artist from Hyde Park, just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Franklin enrolled in the Cowles Art School in Boston, then in 1897 he transferred to the Art Students League in New York. Like most aspiring, young American artists, Wood went to Europe to polish off his artistic training (1903); his home base was Antwerp, where Charles Verlat had been the guiding spirit. Verlat, who passed away in 1890, had spread Thomas Couture's influence to Belgium. Both John Leslie Breck and Edward Potthast studied under Verlat. The image area is approx. 15-3/4 x 12 in. plus good margins. Quality paper; another example of this portrait is in the Harvard collection. VG..
