Original Stanley Badmin etching.

The artist’s own personal exhibition proof, aside from the normal numbered edition. Inscribed in pencil by S.R. Badmin “Artist’s Proof” “A few only” “Edition of 40” and in his original mount with his home address in Sydenham inscribed on the mountboard.

Superb artist’s proof impression with exceptional clarity of line, aside from the normal edition of 40 numbered impressions.

Badmin's fascination for the stark shapes of leafless trees silhouetted against the skyline is rarely better seen than in this marvellous etching. The image shows an old Ash tree near Balcombe, in Sussex.

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