Edward Bawden (1903 - 1989):
Framed (ref: 9195)
Linocut on tracing paper
Image size: 4 3/4 x 9 1/2 in. (12 x 24.1 cm)
Paper size: 5 7/8 x 13 5/8 in. (15 x 34.5 cm)
Provenance: Douglas Percy Bliss and Phyllis Dodd
This linocut was made by Bawden in around 1923 when he was a student at The Royal College of Art. Possibly inspired by a mackrel the opportunity for pattern making have taken precedence over accuracy.
