Original Stanley Badmin etching.

Particularly beautiful impression printed on warm cream wove paper. From the only edition of 40 signed and numbered proofs, as issued for the artist by the Twenty-One Gallery in 1929.

This sombre yet beautifully worked etching depicts a funeral procession as it files its way out of the village of Coleford in Somerset to the local graveyard. Sometimes referred to as The Carrying Funeral, the image shows the coffin being carried by bearers ahead of the group of mourners.

On warm cream wove paper with full margins. Very fine original condition.
