The Graveside, 1928

Framed (ref: 1186)
Signed, dated and numbered 3/50
Engraving, 7 x 6 in. (18 x 15 cm.),

In a fine black and gilded late 19th century print frame

Evelyn Gibbs was the 1929 British School at Rome Scholar in Engraving. The Graveside is one of Gibbs' most evocative pre-Rome images. The monumentality of the figures owes as much to J. F. Millet as it does to the Italian Primitives.

Although planned as an edition of 50 it is likely that Gibbs printed far few.

We are grateful to Pauline Lucas for her assistance.
