Low Tide (London) -  LUMSDEN

Low Tide (London)
Etching, 1921, Lumsden 221; edition 50. 9 1/4 x 13 3/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed and numbered in ink. This impression printed by the artist and is so inscribed, "imp." Here we have a superb, atmospheric impression printed on a fine 19th century sheet of laid paper (watermarked "Stacey Wiseman 1885"). The margins are full and the condition is excellent. Lumsden's London views are rare as he etched only seven such subjects. This exceptional print shows St. Paul's and the city as seen from Southwark. Lumsden's book, The Art of Etching, is a landmark publication first published in 1925. It's been a starting point for most British print enthusiasts over the years, myself included.
