A Wintry Blast on the Stourbridge Canal (West Midlands, Worcestershire)
by Sir Frank Short, R.A. P.R.E., R.I.
The Studio, London, 1925

"From a proof in the possession of the Artist, By courtesy of Mr. Robert Dunthorne."

Wonderfully detailed book plate from the 'Masters of Etching' Series, published in 1925.
Printed on fine paper which is 'tipped on' or mounted onto a stouter sheet of paper. It comes with the original printed tissue guard. It has a pleasant, soft quality and in character is much like an original. There is some very pale age-toning to the margins of the backing paper but the print itself is evenly coloured. Please note that computer monitors vary in their interpretation of colour.

This is not a Frank Short original, which would be expensive. However, as a vintage reproduction, it is very well done. You can even see the little plate mark on the margin. In itself is a lovely item which would look great when framed.

Page size, including margin: 29 x 22 cm OR 11 x 9 inches approximately.
Print size: 22.6 x 16 cm OR 9 x 6 inches approximately.

Francis Job Short (19 June 1857 – 22 April 1945), English engraver, was born at Stourbridge, Worcestershire. Short was elected ARA in 1906 when the rank of associate-engraver was revived. As head of the Engraving School at the Royal College of Art, South Kensington, he had great influence on younger engravers. Short was elected to the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1885, and took a prominent part in conducting its affairs. In 1910 he succeeded Sir Seymour Haden as president. He received, amongst other distinctions, the gold medal for engraving at the Paris International Exhibition, 1889, and another gold medal (Rappel) 1900. His work as a watercolour painter was officially recognized in 1917 when he was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours. He was knighted in 1911.

Your print will be placed inside a polythene bag, packed securely in a cardboard-backed envelope with extra card/paper, and posted via airmail if overseas. All prints, whether antique, vintage or modern should be protected from exposure to direct sunlight.
