Castle on a Hill in Winter - WILLIAM GILES - relief etching printed from multiple zinc plates

WILLIAM GILES
British, (1872-1939)

Relief etching printed from multiple zinc plates, circa 1915-20, edition unknown. 12 7/8 x 9 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, and inscribed "18" in pencil, lower left. This is a fine impression of an uncommon print. The margins are substantial and the condition is quite good. There's a crease in the lower left margin not affecting the image and mild toning in the margins from an early mount. This exceptional color print was probably based on his sketching trips in Denmark, Germany or Sweden. Giles was one of the outstanding students of Frank Morley Fletcher and he excelled in making his sophisticated color prints. Frankly, it is rather difficult to spot the difference between Giles' early woodcuts and the more sophisticated metal relief etchings. The best discussion of his work to date is Malcolm Salaman's 1928 volume, Masters of the Colour Print IV, published by the Studio, London.       $1,800
