[The Thames and City of London from Westminster]
Etching with very large margins, signed in pencil, platemark 130 x 130mm (5 x 5"). Uncut.
Bird's-eye view of London from near Whitehall, looking towards the City of London, showing St Pauls Cathedral on the left and Tower Bridge in the distance on the right. Etching by William Walcott R.E (1874 - 1943), who was described by Furst as 'next to Brangwyn the greatest decorative etcher this country has produced'. Walcot was in fact born in Russia and studied in St Petersburg and Paris, subsequently practicing architecture in Moscow before moving to London early in the 20th century. Walcot's training is evident in his prints, which are concerned with architecture and decoration rather than human life.
