This is a really sweet etching showing little children playing games.

They have found a rope and made up two teams - each team tugs at each end of the rope - and the winner is the team that pulls the end of the rope over the dividing marker. Soper catches all the children's expressions as they struggle to win - and the etching is certainly full of movement.

Another impression is the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The etching is by Eileen Soper - who was famed for these sensitive and quite delicate etchings showing scenes from childhood.

Soper was an etcher and illustrator of children's and wildlife books. She produced a series of charming etchings mainly of children playing and illustrated books for other writers, most notably for Enid Blyton on the Famous Five Books.

Some of her illustrations of children and animals were used in a china series for children by Paragon China in the 1930s.

Her father was the celebrated printmaker George Soper - please see my other works by him in my Etsy store.

This fine print by Eileen Soper is a lovely proof impression from the only edition which was published in 1923.

The image measures: 10 x 17.4 cm

The print is in excellent condition and is a nice clean impression with no marks or spotting to the sheet. It is pencil signed by Soper, lower right.

The frame measures 23.5 x 29.5 cm. It has a grey window mount and an oak frame with a gold edge to the inside.

Please note: The price quoted here is from the artwork only.

The frame comes free with this artwork. Any damage in transit to the frame / mount / picture glass will not be subject to any refunds, discounts or re-framing costs from us.

A fair asking price for a harder to find work by this popular artist.
