Marlborough College

Julian Trevelyan RA (1910-1988)

Rare etching with aquatint of this famous public school dating from 1963.

An artist proof aside from the edition of just 75 copies. Signed, titled and denoted artist proof in pencil.  Printed on heavy paper with deckled edge.

Another of these hangs in the library of the school today. The school’s website has a feature on the work and comments on the clever perspective of the path, the contrast of architecture with trees and greenery and what appears to be the surreal treatment of clouds in the sky (pieces of stilton?!) and what the artist was seeing when he illustrated these.

A photograph of the exact view is shown for reference.

Measurements: 47 x 35 cm plate size

Condition: Overall very good, never framed, there a couple of marks to the far margins, minor
