Winifred AUSTEN, RI, RE (1876 to 1964) Winifred Maria Louise Austen Winifred Marie Louise Austen (1876. .;1964), illustrator, painter, etcher and aquatint engraver of birds and animals., was born in Ramsgate, Kent, in 1876, the only daughter of Josiah Austin, a Cornish naval surgeon, and his wife, Fanny, née Mann. She altered the spelling of her surname from Austin to Austen at the time she began to exhibit. In 1892 the family moved to Hornsey, London, and Austin attended the London County Council School of Arts and Crafts, studying under Mrs J. M. Jopling and Cuthbert Swan, an animal painter; she also spent time sketching at the zoological gardens in Regent's Park. In 1899 at the age of twenty-three Austen showed a picture of a lion at the Royal Academy; in all she exhibited more than seventy pictures at the academy, the last in 1961 when she was eighty-five. While there she met the artists Charles Detmold and his twin brother, Maurice, who introduced her to the oriental influences so frequently present in Austen's work. Although she also worked in both oils and watercolours Austen is most highly regarded as an etcher. In all she made some two hundred etched plates, beginning in 1906 with a series entitled The White Heron. She had particular feeling for birds and small mammals, and the naturalist Sir Peter Scott said 'she was certainly the best bird-etcher of this century. She also experimented with aquatint and colour printing. In 1902 Austen was elected to the Society of Women Artists, then in 1907 to the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, and to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1933. She was also a fellow of the Royal Zoological Society from 1903. Such was Austen's success that she required an agent; she employed Oliver O'Donnell Frick (1868/9. . ;1923), an American from Maryland, for this purpose, and married him in 1917. After leaving her home in Ealing, Austen and her husband lived briefly in both Yeovil, Somerset, and Dorking, Surrey, before moving to Suffolk in 1922 where Frick died from pneumonia the following year. Subsequently Austen lived in a cottage at Orford called Wayside. Innumerable pets and animal waifs also became subjects for her work. A printing press was kept in the kitchen. Although reclusive, Austen was keenly involved with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Havergate Island bird sanctuary Winifred Austen died at 38 Southborough Road, Bickley, Kent, on 1 November 1964.

William Lionel Wyllie (1851-1931) had first-hand knowledge of the River Thames. He sailed its length from London to the sea and painted, drew and etched most of its features &endash; its craft, people and landscape. Wyllie was born into a family of artists in 1851. The rather bohemian family spent their summers on the coast of northern France. Wyllie recalled the journey by steamer down the crowded Thames from London on their way to Boulogne.When he was about 12 he went to art school in London, and in 1866 he started at the Royal Academy Schools. In 1869 he won the Turner Gold Medal for landscape.In 1870 one of the first pictures he exhibited at the Royal Academy was London from the Monument, a panoramic view of the city and the river and he began working as an illustrator of maritime subjects for The Graphic magazine.He had to reproduce detail accurately in black and white, and this discipline probably influenced him when he began making etchings in the early 1880s.Wyllie's first known etching, made in 1884, is Toil, glitter, grime and wealth on a flowing tide. It was commissioned by the print publisher Robert Dunthorne.Wyllie's Thames pictures led him to be elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1889. By 1907, when he became a Royal Academician, he had moved to a house at the entrance of Portsmouth Harbour. He had largely turned to painting naval and historical subjects. When Wyllie died in Portsmouth in 1931, he was the country's most famous marine painter.

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.

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.

Also rather rare as anything Glasgow Girls (act. 1880–1920) is rare .  De Courcy Lewthwaite Dewar (1878–1959), metalwork designer, was born on 12 February 1878 in Kandy, Ceylon, the daughter of a tea planter, John Lewthwaite Dewar, and his wife, Amelia Cochran. Her unusual first name had been passed down through several generations in her family, by whom she was known as Kooroovi, the Tamil word for a small bird. She was one of three surviving daughters of the family. From 1891 until 1908 or 1909 she studied part-time at the Glasgow School of Art. Her enamel and metalwork, which included jewellery, clock surrounds, mirror surrounds, plaques, caskets, buttons, and sconces, was frequently illustrated in The Studio. She also painted, engraved, and produced designs for bookplates, calendars, tea-room menus, and cards, as well as costumes for masques. For thirty-eight years Dewar taught design in the metalwork department of the school, during some of that period with Peter Wylie Davidson, in whose Applied Design in the Precious Metals (1929) her Presentation Casket (c.1910; Glasgow Society of Women Artists, on loan to Glasgow Museums and Art Galleries) is illustrated. ‘Dewar's enamel and graphic work is characterized by strong colour and vigorous outline and the Glasgow Style designs from her student and tutorial phase gradually evolved to a more geometric and boldly coloured Czechoslovakian folk-art influenced style’ (Burkhauser, 163). She was president of the Society of Lady Artists' Club, whose history she wrote (privately printed, 1950). Her sketchbooks of c.1895–1910 (priv. coll.), letters, and journals provide ‘a rare account of a woman designer of the Glasgow Style era’ (ibid.). Dewar was involved with the women's suffrage movement, for whom she designed bookplates, programmes, and calendars. She compiled files on women artists for the National Council of Women in London providing biographical information and reproductions of works. She did not marry and lived with her sister, Katharine, at 15 Woodside Terrace, Glasgow, until her death there on 24 November 1959.

Léon Augustin LHERMITTE, (1844-1925) Les laveuses A great French painter and etcher of the late nineteenth century, Leon L'Hermitte was born in 1844 and was still executing works in the French rural tradition at his death in 1925, 1863 Went to Paris and became a student at the Petite Ecole
 1874 Lhermitte won a third-class medal in the Salon for his painting The Harvest 1881 The Tavern, exhibited in the Salon 1890 Founding member of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts 1894 Officer of the Legion d'honneur Lhermitte showed artistic talent at a young age and his upbringing in the rural village of Mont Saiint-Père in Picardie provided him with the subjects and landscapes that would become the staples of his oeuvre. In 1863 left his home for the Petit Ecole in Paris where he studied with Horace Lecocq de Boisbaudran. It was in that studio that he formed a life-long friendship with Cazin and became acquainted with Legros, Fantin-Latour, and Rodin. He made his debut at the Salon of 1864 where his charcoal drawings revealed that he had a profound sense for nature. His first work, Bords de Marne près d'Alfort, caused a sensation. Lhermitte soon gained a reputation for being as capable with oils as with pastel and charcoal. For his entries, he won a third prize medal in 1874, a second prize medal in 1880, and a Grand Prize award at the Exposition Universelle in 1889. One year later, he was awarded a Diploma of Honour at Dresden. Lhermitte was awarded the Legion of Honour in 1884, was made an officer in 1894 and a commander in 1911. He was elected a member of the Institute in 1905. In 1890 he was one of the founding members of the Société National des Beaux-Arts, of which he was later elected Vice-President. Lhermitte was born during a time that heralded a vast change in the urban and rural landscapes of France. The country was speeding into the modern world as urban spaces became more dense, industrialized, and teeming with activity. France was divided between a more educated, progressive North and a rural South of farm and field laborers. People rarely travelled between the regions and, as Paris became more and more cosmopolitan, Parisians progressively saw the south as a bucolic idyll frozen in time and impervious to change. Urban townspeople imagined rural field-hands as robust, diligent peasant workers, too philistine for the metropolitan world. The urban elite increasingly used stereotypes of the countryside for their own agendas, creating a form of induced romantic nostalgia. As the cities rapidly processed advances in industry and dealt with a burgeoning population, many artists and writers used images to convince urban citizens to view the rural south as a land romantically caught in the past. The peasants were a reminder of life before the industrialised city, a seemingly unchanging people of the earth. A leading member of the school of Social Realism, Lhermitte painted almost exclusively, scenes taken from rural life. The most profound influence upon his work was certainly Jean François Millet, the creator of the Angelus and many other remarkable works, yet, contrary to this, he clearly remained true to his original style of creating beautiful, light-filled pictures in the Barbizon tradition. Lhermitte adopted early on the method of peinture claire similar to that of the Impressionists, except in a more traditionally academic style. He was a talented artist, much respected by his peers, who was also quite commercially successful. Van Gogh wrote of him: "He is the absolute master of the figure, he does what he likes with it - proceeding neither from the colour nor the local tone but rather from the light - as Rembrandt did - there is an astonishing mastery in everything he does, above all excelling in modelling, he perfectly satisfies all that honesty demands." Lhermitte continued to create works in the French rural tradition until his death in 1925, the last survivor in an illustrious group of artists.

Town of Autun in the Burgundy region, also known as Bourgogne, etching by Marjorie Williams dated 1928


This is a town that basks in its Roman origins. Several of the ancient gateways into the town still exist - Porte d'Arroux, built in the 1st century and Porte St-André, the 4th century gateway. After the Romans conquered Bibracte from the Gauls, Emperor Augustus set up his headquarters here in the 1st century, calling the town Augustodunum. It grew in prosperity, controlling the Agrippa Way along the trade route from Lyon to Boulogne. Augustus built the largest Roman Amphitheatre of its time, seating up to 20,000 spectators and the remains can still be seen today, with summer spectaculars performed there each year celebrating past glories.

"La Mort et le Bûcheron" (Death and the woodcutter)
Jean François Millet

French artist. A leading member of the Barbizon School, he painted scenes of peasant life and landscapes. The Angelus (1859; Musée d'Orsay, Paris) and The Gleaners (1857; Louvre, Paris) were widely reproduced in his day. Born in Normandy of a peasant family, he went to Paris to study in 1837.

He settled at the village of Barbizon 1849, with his second wife and growing family, and there, still in poverty, devoted himself exclusively to the paintings of peasant life for which he is famous, such as The Reapers 1854, The Gleaners 1857, and The Angelus 1859.

An exhibition in Paris in 1909 was received with much acclaim and extended his fame to a wider audience.He moved to the Henley area as his interest in hunting, horses and dogs increased and in 1910 he became Master of the South Berkshire Hunt as well as being associated with other local packs. ask always many @ the shop

William Monk
: (Chester, 1863 - London, 1937) Attributed due to skill and similarity Labelled as Manchester 2 miles published by Thos Agnew 1890 £75 He first studied art in his native Chester at Albion House, then completed his education at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. He created slightly over one hundred original etchings during his career: most being views of London, New York, Eton, Winchester and Durham. He was elected a full member of the Royal Engravers in 1899. Museums that purchased his etchings and paintings in the early twentieth century include the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the War Museum, London. 19th century Victorian era etchers and engravers often pulled a select number of impressions before the plate was printed for the regular edition with the title. The Remarque is a small sketch which appears in the lower margin. Because of their early fine printings, Remarque impressions are always the most sought after.

  , SIR FRANCIS SEYMOUR HADEN (1818-1910), English surgeon and etcher, was born in London on the 16th of September 1818, his father, Charles Thomas Haden, being a well-known doctor and amateur of music. He was educated at University College school and University College, London, and also studied at the Sorbonne, Paris, where he took his degree in 1840. He was admitted as a member of the College of Surgeons in London in 1842. Besides his many-sided activities in the scientific world, during a busy and distinguished career as a surgeon, he followed the art of original etching with such vigour that he became not only the foremost British exponent of that art but was the principal cause of its revival in England. By his strenuous efforts and perseverance, aided by the secretarial ability of Sir W. R. Drake, he founded the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. As president he ruled the destinies of that society with a strong hand from its first beginnings in 1880. In 1843-1844, with his friends Duval, Le Cannes and Col. Guibout, he had travelled in Italy and made his first sketches from nature. Haden attended no art school and had no art teachers, but in 1845, 1846, 1847 and 1848 he studied portfolios of prints belonging to an old second-hand dealer named Love, who had a shop in Bunhill Row, the old Quaker quarter of London. These portfolios he would carry home, and arranging the prints in chronological order, he studied the works of the great original engravers, Durer, Lucas van Leyden and Rembrandt. These studies, besides influencing his original work, led to his important monograph on the etched work of Rembrandt. By lecture and book, and with the aid of the memorable exhibition at the Burlington Fine Arts Club in 1877, he endeavoured to give a just idea of Rembrandts work, separating the true from the false, and giving altogether a nobler idea of the masters mind by taking away from the list of his works many dull and unseemly plates that had long been included in the lists. His reasons are founded upon the results of a study of the masters works in chronological order, and are clearly expressed in his monograph, The Etched Work of Rembrandt critically reconsidered, privately printed in 1877, and in The Etched Work of Rembrandt True and False (1895). Notwithstanding all this study of the old masters of his art, Hadens own plates are perhaps more individual than any artists, and are particularly noticeable for a fine original treatment of landscape subjects, free and open in line, clear and well divided in mass, and full of a noble and dignified style of his own. Even when working from a picture his personality dominates the plate, as for example in the large plate he etched after J. M. W. Turners Calais Pier, which is a classical example of what interpretative work can do in black and white. Of his original plates, more than 250 in number, one of the most notable was the large Breaking up of the Agamemnon. An early plate, rare and most beautiful, is Thames Fisherman. Mytton Hall is broad in treatment, and a fine rendering of a shady avenue of yew trees leading to an old manor-house in sunlight. Sub Tegmine was etched in Greenwich Park in 1859; and Early MorningRichmond, full of the poetry and freshness of the hour, was done, the artist has said, actually at sunrise. One of the rarest and most beautiful of his plates is A By-Road in Tipperary ; Combe Bottom is another; and Shere Mill Pond (both the small study and the larger plate), Sunset in Ireland, Penton Hook, Grim Spain and Evening Fishing, Longparish, are also notable examples of his genius. A catalogue of his works was begun by Sir William Drake and completed by Mr N. Harrington (1880). During later years Haden began to practise the sister art of mezzotint engraving, with a measure of the same success that he had already achieved in pure etching and in dry-point. £65 signed to plate only
