Collections: the TATE

One from a set of 4 etchings and 3 linocuts all drawn before the model, a Welsh Cob.  Source: the TATE: Flanagan hired the horse for one day and had it brought to the yard outside his studio. ….. His linocuts and etchings were made with a Welsh cob as model and, for a time, the horse was brought the two miles from Stepney Green to the space outside his studio. ‘Stepney Green’ in turn became the title depicting the scene outside which includes the horse, his groom and the dog ‘Buster’ which frequents the foundry where Flanagan’s sculptures have been made

The black rectangle at the bottom of the plate mark results from the etching process. This mark has been described as like a second signature of the artist.
