[Stockinger weaving Silk Stockings] by Mary Annie Sloane

[Stockinger weaving Silk Stockings]   c.1895

  Original etching with drypoint.
S 338 x 471 mm; P 276 x 331 mm; I 250 x 309 mm
Excellent working proof impression from the artist's own collection.

The most elaborate of Mary Sloane's detailed etched studies of local stocking makers weaving silk stockings in the traditional manner. It is possible, in view of a pencil inscription found on another proof of this print which reads "for the cover", that this etching was intended as an illustration; however, we have been unable to trace further evidence to support this hypothesis. The influence of Sir Hubert von Herkomer's teaching and his traditional Victorian style is clearly demonstrated in this large and elaborate etched work by his former pupil M.A.Sloane.

On cream laid paper with full margins. Generally very good original condition. Image surface excellent.
