Morning Gossip is one of the best known of all of Edmund Blampied’s famous Jersey scenes, portraying the social side of everyday peasant life as remembered from his youth. Here, Edmund Blampied’s art is at its most individual and expressive, capturing the artist’s unique insight into the scene with exceptional dexterity of the drypoint needle. It is for works such as this that Edmund Blampied remains amongst the most sought-after of all of the printmakers of the British Etching Revival.
