Rose Window, Lincoln Cathedral   1928

Original etching.

Excellent impression, beautifully inked to capture the effect of light passing through the elaborate stained glass windows at the far end of the cathedral.
From the only edition of 100 proofs.



The brilliant, intricate etchings and drypoints of Herbert Gordon Warlow remain unsurpassed in the British school of etchers in the incredible detail of their handling. They display a fastidious care, lavished upon every aspect of their varied architecture, which is without comparison. H.G.Warlow was both a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects and an Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers – the artist’s remarkable printed works are the supreme product of this dual qualification.

Herbert Gordon Warlow was a great admirer of the etched work of Charles Meryon and the somewhat bizarre mediaeval figures which people H.G.Warlow's architectural compositions reflect his admiration of Meryon’s Paris views. [more]
