The Prodigal Son

The Prodigal Son   c.1907

Original etching.

Rare pencil signed proof impression of this scarce etching.

Very good, strongly inked impression of this early etched work. Although a total edition of 75 impressions was printed, pencil signed proofs of this etching are extremely uncommon.



Claude Allin Shepperson worked widely as a painter, book illustrator, etcher and lithographer. His work is characterised by a distinct elegance and his figures invariably display an air of aristocratic refinement. After C.A.Shepperson’s untimely death from pneumonia and pleurisy, his plates were printed under the directions of his executors until the intended editions of 75 impressions of each were completed. A monogram ‘CS’ was stamped by the artist’s executors on all such proofs. The plates were then destroyed. [more]
