Original line engraving and drypoint
Signed in pencil.
Ref: Yardley 45
S 292 x 360 mm; P & I 237 x 319 mm
Original Kenneth Steel engraving.
Very good signed proof impression of this fine architectural work, from the only edition of 60 impressions.
Kenneth Steel's original engravings of the principal buildings of Dublin are now the least encountered of all of this gifted printmaker's works. Produced not long before the outbreak of war, it seems that the distribution of these prints was much more limited than that of Kenneth Steel's other engraved works, as all of these particular subjects are now quite rare.
On cream laid paper with margins. Very good condition.
N.B. - Edward Yardley's comprehensive catalogue on the printed works of Kenneth Steel has now been published (December 2020).
