Original Vernon Hill etching, printed in colours.

Unique colour printed proof impression.

A particularly beautiful colour proof impression of this expressive work. No published edition of this rare etching is known.

A marvellous example Vernon Hill's expressive depiction of the human form, Tree Maidens displays a truly elemental spirit, at once graceful, expressive, and possessed with pagan beauty. Here we see Vernon Hill's personal vision of a luscious union of the human form with the ancient spirits of the earth.

The artist gave this work an alternative title of Night Winds.

With margins as prepared by the artist. Very good original condition.
