Eileen Alice Soper (Enfield, Middlesex, 26 March 1905 - 18 March 1990) was an etcher and illustrator of children's and wildlife books, born in 1905 was the second daughter of artist, George Soper (1870-1942), who was an engraver, etcher and illustrator. In 1921 at the age of fourteen, Eileen had her first exhibition at the Print Makers Society of California in Los Angeles. Four of her prints were hung and two of these were later hung in The Royal Academy in London making her the youngest artist ever to exhibit her work there. She continued to produce around 180 etchings mostly of children at play into the early 1930s. Queen Mary bought two of her etchings, among them 'Flying Swings'in 1924. Her work was popular and well received and shown in the UK and the USA. Clean no defects new frame as original one had fungi growing ! Signed proof impression from the only published edition ( see below), as issued by H.C. Dickins for her.
