Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Excellent proof impression, signed with the artistís signature stamp. From the artistís own personal collection.

This large plate is one of Hughesí few architectural etchings and is a rare example of the her using the technique of softground etching Ė this technique allows the artist the freedom of drawing her design in pencil on paper applied to a prepared plate, rather than with an etching needle through the etching ground.

On cream laid F.J.Head & Co paper with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
