[Between the Trees]

Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Excellent proof impression with bright contrast, from the artist's own personal collection. Signed with the artist’s signature stamp.

This striking etching, with its partially occluded view, is indicative of Hughes’ individuality. A lesser artist would have depicted a typical view of the farm which nestles in the valley below. Hughes has chosen to make the bare limbs of two Cornish Elms the subject of her work, to which the landscape beyond remains entirely subsidiary.

On cream laid paper with full margins and deckle edge. Very fine original condition.
