Original Eleanor Hughes etching and ink drawing.

Working proof impression, prior to development of the shading on the wall at the extreme left of the image, before the introduction of the hilltop at the left and before various alterations to the tree nearest to the house chimney just right of centre – Hughes has added this tree by hand in pen and ink. Eleanor Hughes used this impression as a guide proof and the extreme outer corners of the sheet have pinholes where it was once attached to the artist’s studio tackboard.

Signed with the artist’s signature stamp. From the artist’s own personal collection.

On cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
