1911

$650

About

James McBey (1883-1959), Benachie, etching, 1911, signed in ink lower right and numbered XXVII lower left [also signed and dated in the plate lower right]. Reference: Hardie 90, only state, from the edition of 40 proofs. In good condition with full margins (staining lower left, slight loss upper right corner). 4 3/4 x 6 1/4, the sheet 7 x 9 1/16 inches. A fine delicately printed impression, with a subtle veil of plate tone covering the land area below the horizon. The eminent critic Malcolm Salaman wrote of this print: “There is usually in a McBey etching much more than meets the eye, possibly a suggestion of romance, certainly something that the artist’s spirit has touched, an unquestioning poetry. How else account the for the exquisite charm of Benachie, just a clump of silver birches looking across to the endeared mountain, with a suggestion of shrubs growing about, and a woman with an infant in her arms? The impression is atmospheric, and the poetic effect is felt but elusive.”
