The piece of art work that I have of P. E. Laborde
is actually a colored etching, and not a painting. I had been storing
it at my Mother's home. I did pick it up today to bring it home
with me for a better look see. On the back of the etching is a typed
information card, which is taped to the back of the matting . It
reads, "Original Etching, by P. E. Laborde, titled --'Guarding the Goats'.
Etchings carrying this label are Genuine Original French Etchings Imported
from Paris. The Artist placed on this Etching the Triangle Trade
Mark enclosing the letters SZL as a Special Identification. An Etching
is only Genuine Original when made entirely by hand, and no mechanical
process is used."
The colors in the etching are mainly dark brown, green,and blues.
I plan to pursue my search, and hope you will do the same. Please keep me posted.
