This is an etching from a painting by Briton Riviere (1840-1920)

titled In Manus Tuas, Domine.

The piece shows a knight on horseback in a thick forest, approaching a dark passage sloping downwards on the left; the knight raises his sword in front of him, looking at the cross formed by the hilt, while the horse and three dogs with him cower in fear; after Rivière.
Etching printed with heavy surface inking on chine collé

The painting was created in 1879, so the etching would date

to a bit after that, as was common, the date of 1898 being the publish date on this piece.

The engraver was C O Murray.

This etching has a current value of $50USD to $75.00USD retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
