Original Eileen Alice Soper drypoint.

Superb signed proof impression with the fresh drypoint burr printing strong and rich. From the only published edition, as issued by H.C. Dickins. In its original mount carrying the rose blindstamp dated 1924.

The Boat Swing is one of the largest and most vivacious of all of Eileen Alice Soper’s printed works. A wonderfully spontaneous drypoint, The Boat Swing captures the thrills of childhood to perfection.

On cream laid paper with full margins and deckle edges. Both the print and the mount are in excellent original condition.
