Original Muirhead Bone drypoint.
Superb signed proof impression with rich drypoint burr. Printed by the artist himself with carefully wiped plate tone. From the only edition of 160 signed proofs.
This original drypoint was designed to accompany a special edition of Merchantmen-at-Arms by David W. Bone, the artist’s brother (Chatto & Windus, 1919).
On cream laid paper with margins. Time tone verso only, otherwise very fine original condition. Image surface excellent.
