Additional Information about the Print

A scene near Queenwood College in Hampshire. The track through it merges with a grassy lane leading to the deserted Manor House at East Tytherley.

This etching is one of a small selection of Landscapes produced by other artists in the year of Palmer’s death featured in this exhibition of works by his peers.

They comprise three plates from English Etchings – A Monthly Publication of Original Etchings by English Artists, published by William Reeves, Fleet Street.
The loose leaf etchings, in a paper folder, were prefaced by a text describing the subjects or by appropriate poetry, somewhat in the manner of the earlier publications of The Etching Club.
