Original Frank Hill wood engraving.

Excellent impression from the only edition of 20 numbered proofs.

This fine wood engraving depicts a typical stone built Lake District barn with its hand hewn slate roof. The range of contrast and different textures which the artist has achieved across this block are impressive, demonstrating perfectly Frank Hill’s complete command of his medium.

On fine simile Japan paper with full margins and deckle edge. Faint marginal foxing, otherwise excellent original condition.
