About

1926. Soft ground etching. Bolling/Withington 47. 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 (sheet 15 1/4 x 10). Edition 20 or 35 (both numbers are given on different proofs; this one annotated '35') plus trials. A rich impression with plate tone printed on cream wove paper on the full sheet with deckle edges. Signed, titled and annotated in pencil. Housed in an archival mat and an elaborate carved antique gold 23 x 19 x 1 1/4-inch frame weighing 4 1/4 pounds. The subject is probably the dancer, Vanda Edina, of whom the artist made a pen and ink drawing in 1924. At this time, Knight was becoming increasingly interested in the life - especially the back-stage life - of theatre and circus performers.
