  • About

    John Copley was one of the founders of the Senefelder Club (London 1909), a group of artists that devoted themselves to practicing & promoting original lithography at a time when etching was the fashion. It was through this club that Thea Proctor was introduced to this medium, hence the Proctor Fund's donation of this print. This work is one of Copley's earliest prints, produced in 1909, the same year of the first exhibition of the Senefelder Club.
