Alphonse Legros (1837 - 1911)
Alphonse Legros was born in France but moved to England in 1863 on the advice of his friend, Whistler. He became a citizen in 1881, but never completely grasped the English language.A master etcher of figure subjects, portraits and landscapes, Legros assumed the head professorship of etching and engraving at the Royal College in South Kensington in 1875. He later became the professor of art at the Slade School of Art, London. He was one of the group of artists who proposed the idea of the Société des Aquafortistes to the French publisher Cadart in 1862 and was a founder member of the Society of Painter-Etchers in London in 1880. From this position he fashioned a standard and influenced many younger British artists, most notably William Strang, Charles Furse and Charles Holroyd. In total Legros's graphic oeuvre runs to 704 etchings. Most of Legros's figure subjects were inspired by the artist's early impressions of French peasant life. Influences upon his art in this area have been traced to the paintings and drawings of Gustave Courbet and the art of Goya and the Spanish School.

North End of Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, by John W. Winkler , (Austria, 1890 - San Francisco, 1979) Etching, signed in pencil to lower margin, also signed and dated 1918 in the image , £425 inc plate size approx. 242 x 180 mm (9.5 x 7 ins) framed and glazed . In original frame clean and perfect One of the finest American etchers of the early twentieth century, J. W. Winkler was born in Austria settling in California early in life. Winkler studied under Frank van Sloun at the California Institute of Arts and published his first original etching in 1915. During the following eight years he established a large national reputation for his etchings, the great majority being depictions of San Francisco and its environs. By 1923 he had created 88 etchings, which were often compared to the work of Whistler, particularly the Whistler etchings found in the 'French Set' and 'Thames Set'. Like Whistler, John W. Winkler had the ability to capture life and movement with the utmost simplicity. One Winkler scholar wrote, "His technique is so eminently suited to all that he wished to express that it has been little modified during these ten years past. He makes no preparatory designs, sketches or tracings; his impatient nature at no time permits of his delaying from attacking the copper once he has found the motive of the composition. All his plates have been etched directly from nature, after long search and careful observation, in the bustle of the streets or amid the coming and going of the passers-by." In 1923, John Winkler moved to Paris and resided in that city until 1930. During this time the artist produced etchings of Paris streets and its occupants as well as landscape views of Normandy and other provinces. Ferme, Normandie (Farm, Normandy) was commissioned by the Paris art journal, Gazette des Beaux-Arts, in 1924. It is a fine example of Winkler's masterful use of line and space. Returning to the United States, John Winkler became a full member of the Chicago Society of Etchers, the Brooklyn Society of Etchers and the American Society of Illustrators. In 1936 he was admitted into the prestigious National Academy of Design.

Labrador ? 128/150 pencil signed in wash lined mount £185 delivered

Henry Wilkinson , born 1921. An engraver very often of sporting subjects. Born in Bath in Somerset, his Father having been taught to paint by John Ruskin, eventually became the Headmaster of Winchester College of Art. It was whilst living in Winchester that the young Wilkinson learned the first skills of Gun Making, climbing out of the scullery window in the evenings to work, unknown to his farther, at the famous gunmakers 'Hamond of Winchester'. It was at Hammonds that he first became fascinated by engraving, learning from the craftsmen who decorated the metalwork on the hand-made firearms. Today Henry Wilkinson is one of the last remaining qualified Muzzle Loading' gun maker in the country Following his early studies at Winchester College of Art, entrance was gained to the Royal College of Art in the Painting School. By hard work a place was also gained in the Engraving School, under Robert Austin R.A. and Malcolm Osborne MA. MBE, where he won the Royal British Institute Scholarship in Engraving. This gave him extra time at the college and enabled him to gain a traveling scholarship, as well as the diplomas. Study in Heidelberg, France and Italy followed. After the War he was elected to the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers & Engravers, ultimately as a counselor. For many years he was professor of the Engraving School at the City and Guilds of London, a consultant to the Morris Singer Bronze Founders and a council member of the Royal Society of Painter Etchers. These appointments he has now relinquished. While a student at the Royal College of Art Wilkinson was introduced to Harold Dickins by Sir Walter Lamb secretary to the R.A.. Dickins then introduced Wilkinson to George Vernon Stokes the famous canine artist and engraver, Wilkinson then helped Stokes print his editions until his death in 1954. It was only then that Wilkinson began to produce his original drypoints of Dogs and other Sporting Subjects. From origination, to hand engraving his metal plates and eventually printing and finishing the editions, the work is entirely his own. He even produces his own printing inks.
