Piccadilly Circus, 1915 - MUIRHEAD BONE - drypoint

Scottish, (1876-1953)

Drypoint, 1915, Dodgson 332 (vi/VI); 105 impressions in this state. 11 3/4 x 14 7/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb, dramatic impression printed on white Japanese paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition overall is fine. (There's a very subtle suggestion of an old adhesive along the extreme edges of the margins, verso, from an early mount.) This outstanding London wartime scene relates to a drawing now in the Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation. A proof was exhibited at the 8th Exhibition of the Society of Twelve, 1915, and the proceeds of sales were given by the artist to the Belgian Relief Fund. (There were three trial proofs in the first state and 145 impressions in states II-VI).       SOLD
