Etching by F.L.Griggs made in 1935. A fine rich impression printed on wove paper. Second state of six, and therefore one of 2 proofs only and rare. Signed in plate and in pencil. Trimmed to plate edges.
Plate size 181 x 234mm (7 13/16 x 9 1/2 inches)
Sheet size 181 x 234mm
Reference: Comstock 52: Comstock states that the plate was reduced in size in the third state to 6 15/16 x 9 ½ inches. ‘A pencil drawing (1912) of a somewhat similar scene is reproduced on p.154 in Highways 7 Byways in Lincolnshire.’ ‘The plate is another, and perhaps the best, of the pure landscapes so dear to the artist; it is uniquely his, the product of his creative imagination.’…
