The Bathers by Charles Hazelwood Shannon

The Bathers   1904

  Original lithograph.
Signed in pencil.
Ref: Delaney 56
S 452 x 332 mm; I 421 x 300 mm
Very good, strong impression printed in very dark green ink, from the only edition of 50 signed proofs printed by the artist himself.

This large original lithograph is in many ways the archetypal Shannon image, with its graceful female nudes forming a harmonious circular composition, set against the waves of the sea. Shannon's works of this nature are not only fine examples of original lithography, they are also elegant decorative works of art. This particular lithograph is one of the comparatively few which Shannon made using the transfer method.

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