From the Gull Lightship, 1919

A drypoint view from the deck of a lightship looking out on a convoy of dazzle camouflaged ships. Bone has framed the image with the ship’s edge and the rigging, which vertically intersects the right foreground. Seagulls are lightly represented in the upper left. Signed by artist.

Born in Glasgow, Muirhead Bone (1876-1953) was a prominent London based printmaker and an official war artist in both the First and Second World Wars. Bone began practicing printmaking in the 1890s and moved to London in 1901.
