Denny's Old Forge - Dumbarton 1900 - 2nd state

Three large bay windows illuminate the working figures of four men at the centre of the workshop. Two large furnaces with dome-shaped chimneys dominate the right side of the image. A table on the right holds a series of tools laid out in preparation for the day’s work. Bone’s sketchy and deeply etched technique provides a sense of atmosphere indicating the hot and hectic workshop. Signed by artist. This print is also known as: 'Denny’s Old Workshop'.

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.
