The Summer Moon - WILLIAM LEE-HANKEY
Medium: etching and aquatint on zinc with cartridge paper ground
Etching and aquatint on zinc with cartridge paper ground, 1905, Hardie 21; edition 75 in color and 25 in monocrome. 11 3/4 x 9 7/8 in. Signed in the plate with the artist's monogram, lower right. Signed in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression with full margins. The condition is very good other than for a faint suggestion of a mat line from an earlier mount. The artist studied at the Royal College of Art and during the early years of the 20th century he was working in France, notably in Brittany and Normandy. He maintained a studio at the Etaples art colony. In 1912, he established the School of Colour Printing in Hammersmith with Nelson Dawson.
