Description

William Lionel Wyllie (1850-1931) was probably the foremost naval artist of his day and had a close connection with the Royal Navy. This set of etchings, signed by the artist lower left, illustrate the poem "Our Fathers" by Captain Ronald Arthur Harwood (1868-1949) who was a British Naval Officer and poet (and achieved the rank of Rear Admiral). The poem celebrates the work and courage of nameless men who lived and fought before the age of machines, and was published in 1913. It is a moving tribute and is spectacularly illustrated by Wyllie with images of old style sailing warships etc.
