The magnificent printed works of the Yorkshire artist, Percival Gaskell have only been fully rediscovered in recent years. Gaskell rose to prominence whilst working together with Sir Frank Short in the engraving school at the Royal College of Art in London during the first two decades of the 20th century. A true painter-printmaker, Gaskell developed a sensitivity to atmospheric tone which is displayed in an air of timeless beauty in this haunting aquatint nocturne.

On pale cream laid paper with full margins. Excellent condition.
