Walter Dendy Sadler Hand-Colored Etching For Fifty Years,
2005, Furniture and Decorative Arts / Oct 7 - 8
a fine hand-colored etching entitled For Fifty Years, ca 1894, by Walter Dendy Sadler, portraying an old gentleman happily offering his arm to his blank-faced bored wife - for him 50 years of domestic bliss, for her - 50 years of increasing dullness. Archival matting and framing in a period faux grained mahogany frame with maroon suedecloth matting and gold fillet liner; title centered below image For Fifty Years / (Old, But Gallant); publisher's oval embossed stamp and credits lower left L.H. Lefevre / London, Painted by W. Dendy Sadler; center London, Published in 1894 by L.H. Lefevre, __ King St., St. James S.W., the Proprietor, and lower right Etched by W.H. Boucher; 1894 U.S. Library of Congress information top center over image; 19" x 24" (w/o frame), and 23" x 28" (w/frame).

Walter Dendy Sadler (1854-1923) was born in Dorking and brought up in Horsham, where he showed a talent for drawing. At age 16 he decided to become a painter and enrolled for two years at Heatherly's School of Art in London, and later studied in Germany under W. Simmler. He exhibited at the Dudley Gallery from 1872 and at the Royal Academy from 1873 through to the 1890s. He painted contemporary people in domestic and daily life pursuits, and although sometimes criticized for his attention to background detail as detracting from the subjects of his pictures, Sadler gives some of the best studies of Victorian interiors.
