The etched work of the Slocombe brothers, Charles Philip, Edward, and Frederick was highly popular at the end of the nineteenth century. Frederick Albert Slocombe lived in North London and became established as a highly successful painter of landscape and rustic genre, exhibiting widely at the Royal Academy and elsewhere for over fifty years. As an etcher, F.A.Slocombe restricted his original work to naturalistic landscape subjects; however, he was also an accomplished reproductive printmaker, producing highly finished etchings after the work of Joseph Farquharson, Alfred Parsons, B.W. Leader and others. Most examples of F.A.Slocombe’s original etched works are only known today from mass produced publications such as The Portfolio – pencil signed proofs are rare. [more]
