A Workshop by Muirhead Bone

A Workshop   1917

  Original lithograph.
Signed in pencil.
S 389 x 520 mm; I 366 x 478 mm
Original Muirhead Bone lithograph.

Very good, strong impression from the edition of 200 signed proofs, as published by the Ministry of Information in Building Ships. The Great War: Britain's Efforts and Ideals.

A Workshop is one of Bone’s finest wartime subjects, with its complex of massive machinery and wires, brought to life by an industrious, toiling workforce, committed to win a war. This image gives a magnificence to the sheer scale of the task against which Britain's factories were pitted during the Great War.

Very mild discolouration at outer edges of sheet, otherwise very good original condition.
