I added a couple of engravings to my collection this week. #AndrewWatsonTurnbull (1874-1957) was a painter, etcher, and stained glass designer. He was born in Edinburgh. His training was done at the Royal College of Art and the Royal Academy. His work with glass can be seen at St Mark’s Episcopal, St Cuthbert’s Episcopal – in Edinburgh – and St Peter’s Episcopal in Montrose.
The drypoint etching of St John’s College, Cambridge is fine example of his work in this genre – beautiful detail and excellent colour tonality throughout.
We go to an artist born in the north of England. #WilliamTattonWinter (1855-1928) was a well known and respected northern artist. His studies took him to Europe but he returned to England and settled in Reigate. He received royal recognition from both Queen Victoria and Queen Mary and exhibited across Europe. Winter worked mostly in watercolour with which he created many an atmospheric landscape picturing shepherds and sheep and north country life.
Published by #TheMuseumGalleries in 1923, this engraving displays Winter’s wonderful use of colour and perspective in producing his works.
