About

Segovia Bridge, Madrid. 1924. Etching. Harvey-Lee 128. 5 3/4 x 13 11/16 (sheet 10 3/4 x 17 3/4). Edition 74. Printed on 'J Whatman' cream wove paper. Signed in pencil Housed in a 16 x 20-inch mat suitable for framing. The Bridge of Segovia (Spanish: Puente de Segovia) is a bridge located in Madrid, Spain, crossing the Manzanares river.[1] It was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1996. Designed by Juan de Herrera under commission of King Philip II of Spain, it was built from 1582 to 1584 with a total of nine spans. It cost 200,000 ducats. The bridge is composed of bricks of granite. Working as a painter and printmaker, William Walcot became the most celebrated architectural artist in England during the 1920s and 30s. Settling in London in 1907, Walcot was first employed as a draughtsman to the architect Eustace Frere. He soon became a freelance draughtsman, producing presentation drawings for a number of leading architects to show their clients and to exhibit at the Royal Academy. His treatment of these drawings as works of art rather than technical exercises led to commissions from the Fine Art Society to visit Rome and Venice, and he held a total of eight solo shows with that dealer (1908-28). He also showed watercolors and etchings with leading exhibiting societies, and was elected to the membership of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers (ARE 1918, RE 1920) and the Royal Society of British Artists (1913). He was additionally a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects (1922) and an associate of the British School in Rome. Steeped in the culture and architecture of antiquity, he designed and illustrated luxury editions of Salammbô (1926) and Hérodias (1928) by Gustave Flaubert for Les Editions d’Art Devambez.
