This is a very fine original drypoint etching by Sidney Tushingham.

It is a very accomplished work and shows his exquisite draughtsmanship.

The print is a lovely impression with lots of velvety drypoint burr in the shadows.

The scene is the Plaza del Corillo, Salamanca, and probably dates to around the 1920s.

The composition is certainly a most dramatic one - with the dome of a Spanish church seen through an arch. Tushingham loved to depict brightly lit buildings seen through an archway - a compositional device that he probably borrowed from etchings by Whistler.

The figures in the foreground give a sense of scale.

Tushingham has taken great delight in recording all the details of the buildings.

Image Size: 29.2 x 25 cm

Frame Size: 44.5 x 37. 5 cm.

The etching is beautifully presented and has a new window mount and new simple black frame. It is in excellent antique condition and ready to hang on your wall. The print is signed by the artist lower right in the margin.

Sidney Tushingham (1884–1968) was a painter and etcher who specialized in rustic scenes of villages and small-town life.

He was born in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, England, where he started his artistic career as a china painter. He attended Burslem School of Art and progressed to the Royal College of Art.

He worked as a vase painter at Royal Doulton in 1922 as he established his career as a society painter. He also became known for his carefully observed etchings of pre-war Britain, Italy and Spain.

He died in Haywards Heath, West Sussex in 1968.

Another impression of this stunning Spanish view is in the collection of the Fine Art Museum, San Francisco. A fabulous British Etching Revival print of museum quality.
