Reference: Campbell Dodgson 46 state iii/iii [?]


A superb impression printed on cream wove paper in black ink with heavy tone. Signed and titled by the artist in pencil. From the set, Etchings of Glasgow, a series of six plates issued in an edition of 60 in 1899. Many of the sets remained unsold and the artist himself made single plates available over the ensuing years. With Ayr Prison and Mike the Dynamiter this drypoint ranks amongst the artist's finest early plates.

Some dampstaining in the margins and old mounting tape verso but the image and its immediate surroundings unaffected.
