[London, Published by L.Brall & Sons, n.d., c.1888.]
Etching, proof, 325 x 750mm. 'Wrinkling' to paper.
Robert Gallon (1845 - 1925) was a landscape painter who lived in London. He travelled extensively throughout the British Isles to paint his subjects. His etchings appear loose but actually have defined detail. 'Tidal Thames', is a wintry view of the river featuring Blackfriars Bridge & the snow-capped dome of St Paul's Cathedral. Gallon actively exhibited during the years 1868 - 1903 at the principal London Galleries, particularly the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists. This is possibly a trial proof, before publication.
