Description
Size: Frame 48 x 43 cm, print inside mount 34 x 28 cm. Condition: Print in excellent condition, used frame and mount also very good. This is a well composed and meticulously executed print by the artist Francis Dodd. The main focus of the print is the polychromatic Neo-Gothic brick chapel of Keble College, Oxford, completed in 1876. The print is an etching with drypoint. It is signed in the lower right margin in pencil by the artist. The artist's name and the date 1937 are also engraved in the plate lower left. We have not found any other examples of this print. Editions of Dodd's prints tend to consist of about 50 proofs. Francis Edgar Dodd (29 November 1874 – 7 March 1949) was a British portrait painter, landscape artist and printmaker. He was born in Holyhead, Anglesey, Wales, the son of a Wesleyan minister. He trained at the Glasgow School of Art alongside Muirhead Bone, who married Dodd's sister Gertrude Helena Dodd. At Glasgow, Dodd won the Haldane Scholarship in 1893 and then travelled around France, Italy and later Spain. Dodd returned to England in 1895 and settled in Manchester, becoming friends with Charles Holden, before moving to Blackheath in London in 1904. During World War I, in 1916, he was appointed an official war artist by Charles Masterman, the head of the War Propaganda Bureau, Wpb. Serving on the Western Front, he produced more than 30 portraits of senior military figures. However, he also earned a considerable peacetime reputation for the quality of his watercolours and portrait commissions. He was appointed a trustee of the Tate Gallery in 1929, a position he held for six years, and was elected as an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1927 and a full Member in 1935.
