Original Winifred Austen etching and aquatint.

Superb impression, printed with considerable plate tone – the artist’s own personal exhibition proof of this rare, unpublished private plate.

A particularly fine example of this artist’s work, The Trap typifies Winifred Austen’s ability to impart character to her subjects in a truly naturalistic manner without humanising the animals in the manner of Landseer and others.

On very fine simile japan paper, with margins. Very fine condition.
