The East Anglian printmaker and painter, Leonard Squirrell, was a regular exhibitor at both Royal Academy and the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, of which he was a full Member. Leonard Squirrell is known to have produced around 100 original prints, the majority of his subjects depicting the landscapes local to his home at Ipswich, in Suffolk. Haddiscoe Church is a particularly fine example of Leonard Squirrell’s ability to handle a multitude of varied tones of light throughout a mezzotint image.

On cream wove paper with full margins. Generally very good original condition. Image surface excellent.
