Morning StoryNorman Ackroyd RA, CBE (b1938)
An unsually large photo etching with aquatint from 1968, an early one, titled Morning Story.
Signed and dated in pencil, titled and numbered 59/75.
A very different image, Ackroyd being best know for his landscapes, this one showing a view through a window looking out over figures in the street, the circular leading in the window almost seems like it is making a target out of one of the figures. The image repeated with one figure missing and with darker black tones in the bottom half. It was apparently made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
Measurements: 50 x 42.5 cm image size.
Condition: Unframed, in excellent condition.
