Julian TREVELYAN Low Tide  (1957)
An original etching and aquatint in four colours (black, green, mauve and yellow) from one zinc and one copper plate, on handmade Crisbrook wove paper. Signed Julian Trevelyan in pencil and numbered from the small limited edition of 30. Printed by Richard Fozard. Referenced in Turner Catalogue Raisonne of Prints, 87. Plate size: 492 x 380mm.
In good condition for age, with the price reflecting that there is light mottling/staining in the margins - far less so in and around the image, so will mount and frame up very nicely - and the sheet edges probably trimmed (unevenly).
An extremely rare and beautiful - almost abstract - 1950s Julian Trevelyan etching of swans at Chiswick.
In 1950 trevelyan became a member of the London Group, and in 1951 he married the artist Mary Fedden. Around this time he visited the etching Studio of SW Hayter and began multi-plate printing. Towards the end of the 1950s he was appointed tutor of engraving at the RCA in London where he influenced many students, including a young David Hockney.
