This is an interesting original large-scale etching and drypoint by the Scottish artist, William Walcot (1874 - 1943). It is amongst the largest prints ever produced by him.
The print was published in 1915 and is titled "The Atrium to a House of a Patrician, Rome".
This is an imaginary image of a Great Hall of a Roman house. The subject was possibly inspired by Walcot’s visits to Pompeii.
Please also see my Walcot etching made at the same date featuring a large view of the Colosseum in Rome.
It is made using etching and drypoint - with touches of aquatint and is printed on a good quality heavy wove paper. It was published by H.C Dickins, in an edition of 60.
It is faintly signed in pencil by the artist, lower right.
It measures 47.2 x 54.7 cm.
CONDITION. The etching has previously been framed. I have removed it from its old frame to check the sheet.
It is on nice thick paper and has not been laid down. There is a mark on the sheet where the old mount has been near to the margins of the image - and this could be covered by a new fresh acid-free window mount when getting re-framed.
There are time-tone marks on the back of the sheet - which I have photographed for your inspection. There is also a slightly disfiguring brown spot on the margin upper left - which would still be obvious when a new window mount was applied, again this is photographed. Please look at all my images carefully.
This has been taken into account with my pricing. It is a stunning work - and will look just fabulous with a new window mount and all framed up for display.
It is sold unframed. It will be sent in a large tube and insured in transit. It will be very, very carefully packed.
