About

A Woman of Scanno. 1926. Line engraving. 7 7/8 x 6 1/8 (sheet 12 2/4 x 20 5/8). Edition 50. Published by the Twenty One Gallery. A very rich impression printed on cream laid paper. Illustrated: Salaman, Modern Masters of Etching; Fine Prints of the Year, 1927; Print Collector's Quarterly 16 (1929): 342. Signed and dated in pencil. Housed in a complimentary 15 1/2 x 12 1/2-inch brown and black wood frame. Salaman writes, in Modern Masters of Etching, "[Boy and Calf] was followed by the Woman of Scanno, in engraving which, with an expressive feeling for the form which is almost sculptural, Austin achieved a plate which might be called monumental. This woman, wearing the picturesque head-dress peculiar to the district, with the simple bodice and voluminous sleeves, sits with her hands crossed over her full skirt gazing austerely at the narrow purview of her life, and wondering, perhaps, what there could be beyond. The design is fashioned with firmly graven lines, while the modeling is indicated by coaxing shadows. " (pages 7-8)
