Artist: Alistair Grant
Title: French street scene, girls with hoops - An original etching with aquatint; unframed
Description: An original etching with aquatint, signed by the artist lower right and inscribed 'For Blackie'. This work is most likely to date to circa 1954 and is a scarce print by Alistair Grant. The subject is almost certainly a view in Etaples, in northern France, or nearby, as the girls depicted were neighbours of the artist's family in Etaples and feature in other paintings and prints from this period. There is some tape residue from old framing and a diagonal crease to the paper as pictured...
Size: About 7.2 x 12.0 inches image size and about 12.0 x 18.4 inches sheet size on Whatman watermarked paper; unframed
