A limited edition of 5 prints has been printed posthumously by David Maes on Arches paper (250 g/m²)

Although Austins formidable reputation was secured by his line engravings of the mid to  late 1920's it was in the  1930's that Austin produced some of his most attractive engravings, - often featuring single figures engaged in domestic activities -  Young Mother, (1935) Girl on Stairs, (1937),  and Girl by a Gate (1938). Girl Brushing Her Hair, which forms part of this series, has the added attraction of  including  the artist's dalmation, who was the subject of a celebrated print title 'Ling of Lingard' dating to 1936.
