Found in local house clearance in West Malling Kent. Please message me for any more information.... And if you have an offer that I cant refuse. This is an original signed and named, 1929 woodcut colour print by Eric Slater.
The artist has a distinctive style and is becoming quite sought after both in the UK and internationally. Slater's prints are held by the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, and can also be found in national museums in Canada and New Zealand. Eric Slater was a colour woodcut artist who had an international reputation in the 1920s and 1930s.
Notable for their beautifully observed skies, many of Slater's prints are inspired by the South Downs and the coastline near his home. His printmaking was revered during his relatively short career, and much admired by Campbell Dodgson, then Keeper of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum. His work was exhibited in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Austria and South Africa, but he stopped making woodcuts soon after the death of his mother in 1938. By the time Slater died in 1963, he had sunk into obscurity. With no close surviving relatives, he was buried in a shared grave in Seaford.An exhibition of his landscapes was held at the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne, East Sussex, in 2012, the first public display of his work for 70 years. Exhibitions in Seaford and Lewes followed in 2013, during the 50th anniversary of Slaters death. The print itself is extremely good condition. The mounting has signs of ageing in keeping with its age. The frame is of gilded wood and has some damage to it at the bottom front... If this does not sell I will keep and reframe it as I think it is a beautiful piece of art. Every week we find more items and hopefully amongst them is something you are looking for.
