[Two Sycamore Trees]  

  Original etching.
Signed with the artist’s signature stamp.
S 319 x 468 mm; P & I 250 x 264 mm
Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Rare first state proof impression showing the two Sycamore trees in their true setting, prior to the introduction of a Cornish landscape with a distant view across the moors. From the artist’s own personal collection and signed with the signature stamp.

Eleanor Hughes completely reworked this large plate in the subsequent state, introducing an elaborate landscape below and beyond the two Sycamore trees which are the subject of this impressive etching.

On cream laid paper, watermarked England, with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
