Unique presentation proof impression, prepared in the manner of the special ‘A’ edition of this ground-breaking publication, but then vanished by the artist and inscribed “For W.C. Brotherton from William Nicholson Xmas 19(07)”.

Sir William Nicholson’s famous self-portrait. An outstanding presentation proof as prepared by the artist himself.

In original frame. Good original condition.

** (N.B. – this scan was done through the glass as we did not want to remove the picture from its original frame – the nature of the varnish, being a second slightly reflective layer, has caused some areas of white reflection to appear in the scan of the black parts of the image around the artist’s head – these do not show in this manner in reality and do not look anything other than black when viewed normally, by eye.) **
