Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Exceptionally strong proof impression from the artist's own personal collection. Signed with the artist’s stamped signature.

The disused tin mines which punctuate the wild open landscapes of Cornwall have a solitary drama all of their own. In this striking etching Hughes shows us the scarred landscape created by an industry now long forgotten. The abandoned building with its single tall chimney stands as a forlorn monument to a once proud industrial past.

On warm white laid paper with full margins and deckle edge. Excellent original condition.
