Description:

First edition. 252x321mm. pp12 with twelve plates on card protected by tissue paper on which the details of the etching are printed. Original blue papered boards with label in centre of upper cover. Original and rare cream coloured illustrated dust jacket lettered in red. Very slight chipping to the dust jacket but overall in very good condition. The book itself is in fine condition throughout and the plates are superb. This is number 30 of 32 in a series published by The Studio highlighting the work of etchers from Rembrandt to the 20th century. Brangwyn was an enormously inventive and productive artist, working across a vast range of media. Although largely self taught, he did have some training with William Morris. The etchings selected here show Brangwyn's humanity as an artist, his understanding of darkness and suffering captured with a fluid beauty of line and shade.
