A Breton Peasant by George Woolliscroft-Rhead

A Breton Peasant   1880

  Original etching.
Signed in the plate.
S 365 x 255 mm; P 226 x 151 mm; I 218 x 144 mm
Very good, strong impression with pronounced etched line.

This forceful etched study of A Breton Peasant clearly reflects the teaching of Alphonse Legros and bears remarkable stylistic similarities to the etched potraits of another of Legros’s students, namely William Strang. George Woolliscroft-Rhead’s original etchings are comparatively scarce today.

On cream laid paper with full margins. Very good original condition.
