[Trout Fishing on the Test]
Drypoint etching. Sheet size: 320 x280mm Etching from an edition of 100.
Norman Wilkinson, CBE (1878-1971), 'a prolific illustrator of salmon and trot fishing', was an illustrator for the Illustrated London News, and during both World Wars worked developing camouflage techniques. Although no comprehensive catalogue of Wilkinson's angling etchings has been published, David Beazley suggests 'a total number of etched images amounting to 71, of which at least 45 were offered for sale as single sheet prints in signed limited editions'.
