This is a very interesting print by Robert Henderson Blyth (1919- 1970).
Robert Henderson Blyth was born in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1934 - 1939. Blyth joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1941 and served with them until the end of the Second World War.
In 1946 he began teaching at the Edinburgh School of Art and became an artist in residence at Hospitalfield House, Arbroath. He moved to Aberdeen in 1954 to take up a post at Gray's School of Art, where he became head of drawing in 1960, a post he maintained until his death in 1970. He was very influential on a whole generation of Scottish artists.
It is a most attractive and unusual image by him.
It is one of Blyth's rare colour lithographs - and is signed by him, bottom left (as photographed).
It is sold unframed. The image size is 26 x 28.5 cm
This lithograph shows a lady photographer. She wears a large white sun-hat and long smock-dress. She has a portable camera which she moves about on a trolley with large wheels, and to her side is a large furled parasol and a little stool for her to sit on. Her photographs are set out in front of a row of sun-bleached houses, and she prepares to offer them to tourists or visitors. The leafy palm trees in the background suggest that Blyth may have created this lithograph whilst he was visiting Spain.
Colour lithographs by Robert Henderson Blyth are relatively rare and do not come up for sale that often.
Works by Blyth are in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland. A similar lithograph was offered for sale at the Fine Art Society, Edinburgh in Sept 2019 for £450 - so the price of my one is certainly a fair one - and will allow you to get a frame of your choice for it.
