'Babes in the Wood'Original etching by Herman Herkomer

HH1 "Babes in the Wood."

Original etching drawn and etched by Sir Hubert von Herkomer, R.A., R.W.S. (1849-1914)
Published London c.1880.

German Children amuse themselves with the game of "The Babes in The Wood", employing toys to represent the terrible beasts of prey which legends say the babes encountered after their cruel desertion in the forest. In Mr. Herkomer's etching we have his own children making believe they are appauled at the dragon darting his fiery tongue at them. The tree stands as a suggestion of the forest primeval. The artist was born in Bavaria, taken to the U.S. in 1851 and finally settled in Southampton, England, in 1847. He founded and directed the Herkomer School of Art in Hertfordshire, 1883-1904,and was a Slade Professor of Fine Arts at Oxford, 1885-1894. He invented the 'Herkotype", a hybrid of monotype and photogravure.
Condition-excellent including copper plate mark 28.5cm x 38.5cm.
