'The Acropolis, Athens'

pencil signed etching by

Mary Sloane

Mary Anne Sloane; 1870-1961, born in Leicester, the painter and printmaker Mary Anne Sloane was a pupil of Sir Hubert von Herkomer at his School of Art at Bushey. Mary lived for many years in Enderby, Leicestershire, and later moved to London, where she became friends with Sir Frank Short and his assistant at the Royal College of Art, Constance Mary Pott, herself a recognised artist. Mary was fascinated by the traditional craft of weaving, practised in her home town of Enderby, and she recorded this increasingly uncommon skill in a number of her finest etched works. Few of Mary Sloane's etchings and drypoints were ever published in any formal edition.

A finely detailed etching which has bright unfaded colour, printed in black ink, the image measuring approximately 23 cms. x 11 cms. (9 x 4¼ ins.) within a strong plate mark and impression.

Printed on a laid paper sheet size 30 cms. x 16 cms. (11¾ x 6¼ ins.) with makers watermark.

Signed and titled in the image and signed by the artist in pencil.

Unmounted and unframed, the condition of the image and sheet is very good.
