A rich, dark impression of this previously unrecorded drypoint, apparently one of only two examples printed, this with tone on cream laid paper. Numbered 2/2 in pencil and inscribed by Nicholson on the back of the original frame, MLK from BN/ Aug 54. One of a small number of extremely rare drypoints produced by Nicholson between 1948 and 1953.

The recipient of this print was Marie Lister-Kaye, principal of the Abbey School, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.
