The father of Eileen Alice Soper, George Soper was heavily influenced in all of his early printmaking by his friend and neighbour William Palmer Robins. George Soper and W.P.Robins sketched together and shared subjects; however, George Soper’s work was essentially more figurative than that of W.P.Robins, always featuring people or horses engaged in some form of daily activity. George Soper had been producing competent original work for some years before he sought out Frank Short’s guidance in matters of technique. He worked with Frank Short, between the years 1916 and 1920 and during this time his printed work went from strength to strength. [more]
