Etching and drypoint on paper

Percy Lancaster studied at the Manchester School of Art and later at Southport School of Art. He was a major Edwardian artist who exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute, and the Royal Watercolour Society. Lancaster was not only a superb watercolourist, but also produced stunning, technically accomplished etchings, such as this strange image.

In the mid-1920s the artist travelled to Brittany in France - this etchings reveals his fascination with old Breton peasant women. His print editions were generally small often only 35 - 45 impressions being made of each image.

He was elected an Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1910. His work is in a number of public museums and galleries nationwide - including the V&A, London, Manchester, Liverpool, Hull, Oldham, Huddersfield, Preston, Leicester, Eastbourne, Newport, and Portsmouth.
