The Father's Leave-Taking - WILLIAM HOLMAN HUNT
WILLIAM HOLMAN HUNT
Etching, 1879, Hartnoll 17, Walker Art Gallery 83; edition unknown. 7 1/2 x 9 7/8 in. Initialed and dated in the plate, lower right. This is a superb proof impression on Japan paper of the completed image with the borderline added. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This impression is one of a small group of proofs printed before the formal edition of 100 for the Etching Club publication by H. Blair Ansdell. This exceptional Pre-Raphaelite print is from the collection of Mrs. Elizabeth Burt, by adoption, the artist's granddaughter. This uncommon print portrays Hunt's second wife, Edith, holding their daughter, Gladys.
