Original Francis Dodd drypoint.

Very good impression from the only edition of 55 signed proofs.

The superbly accurate topographical drypoints of Francis Dodd are never mere studies of architecture; they are vibrant scenes, full of the lively interest which gives the place its distinct character. This image shows the spires of Eton College Chapel rising above the roofs of the local houses as seen from Barnes Pool Bridge.

On simile Japan paper with margins. Very good original condition.
