About

Engraving on copper. Physick catalog 368 state ii. 4 3/8 x 4 1/4 (sheet 13 1/16 x 9 7/8). Second state of the engraving, as indicated by the ballet skirts worn by each skater. (In the first state, the skaters were completely nude.) Skaters was based upon a photograph in the 'Daily Mirror' of two men skating. As published in Engravings by Eric Gill Douglas Cleverdon, Birmingham, England, 1929, in an edition of 480. (There was also ad edition of 50, presumably signed and numbered, and a hand-colored edition.) Printed on the full sheet of cream wove paper. Unsigned. Housed in a 20 x 16-inch archival mat suitable for framing. Eric Gill was a painter, sculptor, typeface designer and printmaker associated with the Arts and Crafts movement in England. He was one of the greatest and most influential wood engravers of the 20th century. His work is dominated by two overriding themes, religion and eroticism. A true artist-craftsman, Eric Gill established a community at Ditchling in Sussex where he practiced sculpture, wood engraving, and founded the St. Dominic’s Press. He designed the Gill Sans typeface in 1927–30, based on the sans-serif lettering originally designed for the London Underground. The elegant typeface is still used today.
