About

A rich impression with plate tone printed on antique 'GR' laid paper with a hunting horn countermark. As published in J. Lauer's volume, A complete catalogue of the Etchings and Drypoints of Arthur Briscoe. One spot in the right-hand sheet; otherwise in excellent condition. Signed in ink Housed in a 16 x 20-inch archival mat, suitable for framing. The Roaring Forties is the name given to strong westerly winds found in the Southern Hemisphere, generally in the areas between the latitudes of 40 and 50 degrees south in the Southern Hemisphere, where the prevailing winds blow persistently from the west. The roaring forties have strong, often gale-force, winds throughout the year. They were named by the sailors who first entered these latitudes. Norman Wilkinson also etched the subject. In 1899 he acquired a studio in Malden, Essex, and bought a 3 ton cutter which, with his young family, he would spend eight or nine months a year, sailing to Calais, along the Belgian coast and through the Dutch waterways, constantly sketching and painting in both oil and watercolor. In 1922, after a meeting with the etcher James McBey, Briscoe returned to etching once more producing plates of some of his sea sketches. The two artists sailed together in Briscoe's, forty-ton yacht, the "Golden Vanity." Briscoe produced 189 etchings dealing with the sea and the sailing ship. His works were eagerly sought after and purchased by collectors throughout the 1920s and 1930s. His work was always technically accurate and very evocative of the last years of square-rigged sailing ships. Briscoe left an invaluable historical record of the workings of the last great commercial vessels.
