1913

About

1913. Drypoint. Dodgson 299.x. 12 x 9 (sheet 16 x 11 1/4). Edition 125 in 10 states. A rich impression with burr and tonal wiping. Printed on simili-Japan paper with wide margins. Signed, dated, titled and annotated '8' on the front; annotated and numbered '96' in pencil, verso. in pencil verso. Housed in an archival mat and a stunning 20 1/4 x 15 1/2-inch black and gold frame. This is one of Bone's most dramatic images. The night shadows in the heavy rain are illuminated by the lights ad the intersection of the via Schiavonia and the via di Ripetta. The buildings along the Tiber are on the left, and the Church of San Rocco is on the right. Muirhead Bone was born in Partick, a suburb of Glasgow in 1876. As a young man he was apprenticed to a firm of architects and in the evenings attended classes at the Glasgow School of Art. Aware his vocation was art, and not architecture, he devoted his time almost exclusively to drawing. He continually sketched the streets, buildings and slums of Glasgow imbuing the urban decay with a dignity and sentiment he so admired in the work of the Dutch artists whose townscapes he had studied in the Glasgow Corporation Art Galleries. Bone moved to London in 1901, holding his first exhibition at the Carfax Gallery in 1902. His success both critically and financially was rapid. His status as an etcher in the early years of the last century placed him among the worlds most celebrated artists. It is not an exaggeration to say that his international reputation among collectors and the curators of the 'Great Print Rooms' of Europe and America was without parallel. He was appointed the first Official War Artist in World War I and was the doyen of War Artists in the Second World War. He was instrumental in the foundation of The Imperial War Museum, and became a Trustee of The Tate and The National Gallery. He was knighted for his services to art in 1937.
