Thomas Creswick was one of the most highly acclaimed and successful of the Victorian landscape painters and was also one of the leading early members of the Etching Club. It is his masterly handling of light which gives his finest etched landscapes, including An Evening Walk, such radiant brilliance. Indeed it was to Thomas Creswick’s masterly etchings that Samuel Palmer turned after completing his first etching of The Willow, in order to develop the depiction of light in his own etched works.

On cream chine appliqué on original warm white wove backing sheet, with full margins, as issued. Minor foxing towards outer edges of sheet, otherwise very fine original condition. Image surface excellent.
