Palace Court
Etching, 1933, Comstock 49 (iii/III), edition 75. 10 1/16 x 7 1/16 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on white laid paper. The margins are trimmed by the artist around the platemark with a little more on the bottom to accommodate the signature. The condition is fine. 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..."
