Beginning Collectors
For the beginning collector the reason for collecting may be love of art or interest in subject matter. Tastes vary for each individual.

When buying art, one should always ask the question- "Do I want to live with it?" The test of pictures is in living with them.

Before buying, study and learn all you can about prints. The best way to do this is, visit museums, libraries, and print fairs. The development of good taste comes with the training of your eye when viewing images and the styles of various artists.

Never believe you should buy anything because it is a good investment. Buy what you like when you know why you like it. One always hopes the days of the investor-collector will become a thing of the past.

One last bit of sound advice is buy from reputable dealers.

Lester George Hornby
Lester George Hornby was born in Massachusetts and received his early training in fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Hornby's graphic output includes about 330 etchings, drypoints, color aquatints, and lithographs, done from 1905 through the 1940's.

His technique was often complicated and variable before the desired effect was achieved. He used different sands and powdered resins to obtain various effects in the shadows and lines of his finished product. Also, his wiping techniques or retroussage in printing gave him excellent results in the large areas of light and shadows, which were prominent in so many of his plates.

After the conclusion of World War 1, Hornby, became less intrigued with dramatic tones and atmospheric effects and concentrated more on achieving effect through the line itself. During the 1940's he became interested in lithography and produced some strong images such as, Night Watch, The Plowman, and Palais de Justice La Conciergerie. Never an equal to his earlier etchings, they did however, evoke a mystique through shadows and atmospheric effect.

It should be mentioned that edition sizes are only approximate, as Hornby may have intended to print in the edition sizes noted, but usually printed in smaller numbers.

Philip Kappel
Philip Kappel was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1901, and graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, in 1924. Three years later he was admitted into Who's Who in America, the youngest individual ever listed.

For many years he was employed as an artist by the major steamship lines in the United States, such as, the Columbia Line, American Export Lines, and the Cuba Mail Line. His artwork became a record of shipping, past and present, forming a fascinating collection of the ships and men who sailed them.

His technique showed the hand of an illustrator's pen and ink, bold strokes were used for emphasis and clarity of design. At other times he used combinations of light and dark, forming silhouettes, which he learned from the marine artist, Philip Little, while spending summers in Salem, Massachusetts. This silhouette style can be seen in some of Kappel's drypoints, and his illustrations for C.W. Taussig's book, Rum, Romance, and Rebellion.

Kappel received many awards for his work. The Bijur Prize, Brooklyn Society of Etchers, 1926, for the print, Repairs. In 1946, Off El Morro, Puerto Rico, received a Purchase Prize in the First Annual National Art Competition held by Associated American Artists, New York. First Prize for, Winter Tracery, New Milford Green, Arts and Crafts Association of Meriden, 1950. First Prize for, Sugar Maples in Spring, Kappel Residence, Meriden Art Association, 1961.

He was the author of several books, the most noted being, Boothbay Harbor-A Portfolio of Sketches, 1924, Louisiana Gallery, 1950, Jamaica Gallery, 1960, and New England Gallery, 1966. The last showing a fond appreciation for his New England heritage, containing 131 drawings and text of the areas most intimate and cherished places.

Not only was Kappel recognized for his graphic artwork, but also as an authority on Chinese porcelain, Japanese art, and American and English antiques. He has written and lectured extensively on these topics.

In finalizing the works of Philip Kappel, one must state, he honestly and directly recorded the sailing vessels and steamships bound for various ports of call. The men and ships sailing these waters were depicted in the rich burr of drypoint, capturing bright sunlight on paper with open white spaces. His romance with the sea and man's struggle with its elements and quieter moments were fulfilled.

George Overbury "Pop" Hart Hart was born in Cairo, Illinois, and for the most part was self-taught, although, he spent some time at the Chicago Art Institute and the Academie Julian in Paris. No doubt, his impatience with academic learning caused him to leave, but he was encouraged by, and learned from his artist friends.

Hart was more content living the simple life over affluence and critic recognition. The small amount of money he received from sign painting, and stage designs for movie sets, was used for his travels to warm and distant places. Traveling to Mexico, Central America, North Africa, the Caribbean and South Seas, Hart, experienced life with excitement, amusement, and empathy.

More than eighty prints portray his vagabond encounters on paper, in an experimental manner, rather than conventional. The use of broad strokes, liquid tusche washes, sandpaper, roulette, and monotype, helped to achieve a painter like quality in his work. Hart's images show exuberance in the everyday life of working people at cockfights, fiestas, outdoor markets, and leisure activities.

This was an artist that loved creating images, and the people, seen, in them.

About Us:  Egon & Joan Teichert

Egon and Joan Teichert have been private dealers in fine American and Continental works on paper for over twenty years.

We have a major commitment to fine American prints by forgotten or not well-known artists who, today, deserve further attention from collectors and the art loving public. By a "fine print" we mean an original work of art done by one person, the artist. On our Exhibition site we will continue to show fine images of forgotten American graphic artists from the 19th and 20th century.

We are also enamored with drawings and water colors as they tend to show the personal reflections of the artist's creative process, before rendering the final, finished work.

American women artists, have usually been overlooked over the decades. We will do our utmost to extend care in developing this area, as well as subject oriented images. New York City scenes are a particular favorite of the gallery.
The Gallery News site will exhibit our current price list or catalogue with illustrations. Those wishing to down load may do so. Others may Email or telephone their request.

We shall continue to promote prints and drawings of quality at a price most beginning and advanced collectors can afford. For those wishing to visit us at Print Fairs or other Shows, please check our Calendar.
