Castle on a Hill in Winter -  GILES

Castle on a Hill in Winter
WILLIAM GILES
British, (1872-1939)
Relief etching printed from multiple zinc plates, circa 1915-20, edition unknown. 12 7/8 x 9 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, and inscribed "18" in pencil, lower left. This is a fine impression of an uncommon print. The margins are substantial and the condition is quite good. There's a crease in the lower left margin not affecting the image and mild toning in the margins from an early mount. This exceptional color print was probably based on his sketching trips in Denmark, Germany or Sweden. Giles was one of the outstanding students of Frank Morley Fletcher and he excelled in making his sophisticated color prints. Frankly, it is rather difficult to spot the difference between Giles' early woodcuts and the more sophisticated metal relief etchings. The best discussion of his work to date is Malcolm Salaman's 1928 volume, Masters of the Colour Print IV, published by the Studio, London.

Stonehenge -  GILES

Stonehenge
WILLIAM GILES
British, (1872-1939)
Woodcut printed in colors, undated (probably 1915-1920), edition probably 100 impressions. 9 5/8 x 14 7/8 in. Initialed in the block and signed and numbered in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are wide and probably full. Apart from very minor discoloration showing in the margins, the condition is very good. Giles is a remarkable colorist and here he captures this timeless subject with subtlety and careful gradations of hue and tone.

The Rock of Ages (Le Puy, France) -  GILES

The Rock of Ages (Le Puy, France)
WILLIAM GILES
British, (1872-1939)
Woodcut, probably 1938, edition unknown but probably about 50. 12 3/4 x 9 7/8 in. Initialed in the block with the artist's monogram. Signed in pencil, lower right, and inscribed "No.11" of an unknown edition. This is a fine impression in excellent condition. The margins are probably full but are somewhat narrow on the left and right. This wonderful, rare work comes with the original exhibition booklet from the Society of Graphic Art, Royal Institute Galleries, London, 1938. Furthermore, we have the original, paid receipt from the buyer of the print from the exhibition! In the entry for this work, this print is listed as simply a "water-colour print" but it's mostly likely a woodcut with the probable addition of zinc relief plates. Giles's working methods are difficult to sort out and there's no formal catalogue of his prints.

British, (1876-1938)

A total of five impressions exist of the first two states. According to Griggs, this was an imaginary scene. "It is a kind of essay on East Anglian building - of mediaeval kinds..."
