[Edward Julius Detmold. & Charles Maurice Detmold]
Unsigned etching issued in The Artist Engraver, April 1904
Etching. Plate 230 x 173mm. 9 x 6¾".
This was the first commercially published etching by the Detmold twins and attracted considerable attention. A collaboration that saw them elected as associates of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in the sinter of 1904. A bird of prey perched on a trunk with its wings in a defensive position squawking. The sun creates a halo behind the head.
Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957) was twin brother to Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908). The pair were among the artists associated with the Golden Age of Illustration. They worked together making sketches at the Zoological Gardens and exhibited together from the age of fourteen. He became one of the best Edwardian animal illustrators, known for his subtle placement of animals within their natural environment. Edward expressed artistic versatility and published a number of books of fine fantasy drawings in the 1920s; they portrayed a vivid imagination and he utilised warm colouring, which suited the period. The Jungle Book (1908) was to be the last substantial commission that the brothers worked on - due to the death of Charles in that same year. The extraordinary success of their illustrations to accompany Kipling's classic tale, however, firmly established the reputation for Edward and the following year, a suite of illustrations prepared to Aesop's tales were published in The Fables of Aesop (1909).
