This is an exceptional original pencil signed drypoint etching by the Scottish printmaker, Sir David Muirhead Bone.
It is pencil signed lower right, as photographed.
Bone is one of the finest Scottish printmakers of the Etching Revival period. He is best known for his fine architectural subjects, city views and landscapes.
This print was made in Marseilles in 1937. It shows a more unusual viewpoint which looks down upon the railway tracks. To the right, a boy leans against a low wall looking out over the scene. Bone carefully depicts all the details of a dense urban panorama which is almost completely filled with industrial buildings. In the distance, you can just see all the masts of tall ships in the Old Harbour, and in the far distance are mountain peaks.
This is a harder to find print, as many of the impressions which were issued as now in collections of some of the world's leading museum collections.
This is a fine impression with no condition issues. It has a nice pronounced platemark.
It is being sold framed in a period giltwood frame.
Image size: 25 x 31. Frame size is 46 x 51 cm.
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.

It is a fair price for this wonderful tour-de-force in printmaking.
