R.M.I.G. - New Senior School at Rickmansworth.
Charles Knight(?) [19]34. [Signed and dated in pencil lower right.]
Etching, 250 x 200mm. 9¾ x 8". Light foxing.
The Royal Masonic School for Girls is an independent school in Rickmansworth, England with both day and boarding pupils. The school was instituted in 1788, with the aim of maintaining the daughters of indigent Freemasons, unable through death, illness, or incapacitation to support their families. Today, the school accepts the children of both masons and non-masons. It began in 1789 with fifteen pupils and a Matron in Somers Place, East London. During its history, the school has moved premises three times, twice within London and finally in 1934 (the date of this etching) to Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire, where it still is today. Possibly the etcher is landscape painter Charles Knight (1901 - 1990), who was Vice President of the Royal Watercolour Society 1961-64.
