Reference: Comstock 54. A small church in Gloucestershire , quite hidden away in the wolds, not far from Ermine Street, between Gloucester and Cirencester. This plate, the last one etched in the artists long projected list of little churches, is somewhat more dramatic in treatment than the others. Yet this is perhaps due to the lighting of the scene than to the scene itself; for the intimacy and peace found throughout the series is here strongly sensed.
Artprice records show that this etching has not been up in auction since 2005. Therefore rare.
