Excellent impression with clear line in the detailed passages of etching. Signed proof from the only edition, as issued as presentation plate for the Print Collector’s Club in 1947.
Eric Wilfred Taylor is one of the group of original etchers who studied under Malcolm Osborne at the Royal College of Art during the early 1930’s. He was runner-up to Wilfred Fairclough for the Prix to Rome in engraving in 1934. It was largely on the strength of this plate of Somerset Farm, one of E.W.Taylor’s few post-war etchings, that he secured his election to full member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1948.
On cream wove paper, watermarked J. Whatman, with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
