1883 - 1948

The Mosque, Calcutta by Ernest Stephen Lumsden

The Mosque, Calcutta   1912

  Original etching.
Signed in pencil.
Ref: Lumsden 126
S 270 x 197 mm; P & I 216 x 152 mm
Very fine impression, from the only edition of 53 signed and numbered proofs.

Lumsden’s minimalist use of line in this work echoes the exquisite simplicity of Whistler’s finest etched works. Executed with practised confidence and yet with great delicacy, this etching ranks amongst the best of Ernest Stephen Lumsden’s Indian plates.

On cream simile Japan paper with wirelines, with good margins. Very fine original condition.
