The Masts, Lincoln

The upper half of this drypoint etching features a shoreline view. Along the left of the image, behind the masts of the ships in dock, several buildings are visible. In contrast to the rest of the composition, the ships at centre have deeply etched shadows which lend dynamism to the image. Further, the foreground is un-etched, save for a light application of ink which suggests the water. Signed by artist in plate.

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.
