Eleanor Mary Hughes

1882 – 1959

[Town houses, Cornwall] by Eleanor Mary Hughes

[Town houses, Cornwall]  

  Original drypoint.
Signed with the artist’s signature stamp.
S 158 x 198 mm; P & I 93 x 119 mm
Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Trial proof impression in an early state of the plate, prior to shading on the blank white wall at the left of the image. Signed with the artist’s signature stamp. From the artist’s own personal collection.

This plate depicts exactly the same view as the matching etching; however, in this drypoint version the image has been drawn directly on to the plate from life and thus has printed the view in reverse to nature.

It has been suggested that this view shows Avalon House in South Place, Penzance; however, this is not the case.

On cream laid paper, watermarked Abbey Mills Greenfield, with full margins and deckle edge. Very fine original condition.
