Etching, 225 x 250mm. 8¾ x 9¾".
A rather bleak and oppressive scene of a vast industrial conurbation, with figures and multiple placards and hoardings advertising products and events in the foreground. Smoke belches from factory chimneys and five pottery kilns. The Latin American artist Joaquin Macias is known to have lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Nicaragua, and to have visited Chile in 1951. In a hand written note discovered with a group of his etchings, he mentions a period of "30 years residence" in Britain. He seems to have etched most of his plates in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
