[III. - The Grand Canal.]
Wilfred Huggins [signed inside plate in pencil.] W.H
[MDCCCCXXIII.] W.R. Howell & Co.
Etching. Sheet 380 x 457mm. 15 x 18".
From: "A Series of Etchings made in Venice by Mr. Wilfrid Huggins." Limited Edition: 206. Lined on both sides by a succession of palaces, built in general by great or wealthy Venetians of the past, the Grand Canal forms one of the main arteries of the city. Broad and dignified, there is room in it to catch the feeling of a peace which is almost literally musical. The lapping of the waters is gently audible,-the occasional song of a gondolier is sweet as the song of a bird! What life there is, forms, or necessity, a succession of scenes appealing to the imagination in a way far rmoved from the chaotic effects felt amidst noises and scenes in other cities. The large dome of the Church of Santa Maria della Salute, whose façade is shown in a previous etching, here appears against the distant sky.

W.Walcot [pencil signature.]
[n.d., c.1910]
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.

He attended Heatherley’s art school until the age of fifteen, leaving to study at the Royal Academy Schools, where he won the Turner Medal at the age of eighteen. In the early 1870’s Wyllie became an illustrator for the Graphic and also held several exhibitions at the galleries of the Fine Art Society. In 1889 he was elected an associate of the Royal Academy, where he exhibited his work in 1901. Wyllie spent much of his time at sea working for the White Star Shipping Line. He also served in the Royal Navy during WWI, painting seascapes and coastal landscapes. His etchings and watercolours showing working life on the Thames and the Medway brought him widespread popularity. Later in his life he played an important role in the restoration of the Victory. Wyllie died on the 6th April 1931 in Hampstead, and scouts from the 1st Portchester Sea Scout Troop, which he had founded, rowed his coffin across Portsmouth Harbour for his burial at Portchester Castle.
