[The Lily Trotter.]
Etching, signed in pencil, 230 x 230mm, 9 x 9". Slight creasing.
A jacanas chick on a lily pad. Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957) and his twin Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908) were twins and child protegés who worked very closely together until C.M. Detmold committed suicide in 1908. Traumatised, Edward produced only one etching in the next fifteen years, returning to the art only in 1923.
Guichard: p. 35, 'as exquisitely detailed as any'.
