My Dug-out, Somme, 1915 by Adrian Cornwell-Clyne

 

Mezzotint and aquatint with touches of etchingprobably 1915315x233mm[sheet 425x332mm]

 

A very good strong impression printed on heavy wove paper. Signed, titled and dated by the artist in pencil. Some staining in the margins and overall discolouration verso but generally good. A most interesting image and certainly extremely rare; we are not aware of any other prints by this artist.

Adrian Cornwell-Clyne was a serving officer in the First World War. Later he became a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and wrote a number of books on photography and colour cinematography.
