Scarborough Harbour, Yorkshire - NELSON DAWSON
Medium: aquatint with soft ground etching printed in colors
Aquatint with soft ground etching printed in colors, circa 1910, edition unknown. 9 1/2 x 13 5/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression of this exceptional print. The margins are full and the condition is very good; there's just a modest outline of toning from a previous mat opening. Dawson was an enameller and etcher and initially studied painting and architecture. In 1912, he established a school of colour printing in Hammersmith with W. Lee-Hankey. He also established the Artificiers Guild in association with the jeweller, Edward Spencer. This poetic, Whistlerian image has a distinctive arts and crafts flavor and is by far the finest print we've encountered by this artist.
