Description
This print is a particularly fine example of Dodd's work. It is a drypoint engraving and etching, printed on fairly fine paper to capture the detail. It was issued in an edition of 100. The print is signed lower right in pencil by the artist, and also in the plate bottom left with the date 1927. 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. From 1911 Dodd lived at Arundel House (51 Blackheath Park) in Blackheath, London Se3, until his death in 1949.
