William Nicholson

This title page includes an original vignette woodcut of the Rottingdean windmill which was to become the internationally reknowned Heinemann windmill colophon used as the trademark for Heinemann publishers and has appeared on their books since 1897

Produced by Edité par Paris:Société Française d'Editions d'Art, and edited by L. Henri May 1898.

 (Sir) William Nicholson; 1781-1844. Portrait-painter and etcher, also known as  Beggarstaff, along with James Pryde, (1866-1941) was almost entirely self-taught, learning his craft through the close study of artworks in private and public galleries.

An excellent print which has bright and unfaded colours. The images printed on a wove paper sheet size measuring approximately 25 cms. x 32 cms. (10 x 12¼ ins.)

Unframed and unmounted with the content list printed on the reverse, the condition of the image and sheet is very good with handling marks condusive with age.
