Robert Austin, calls The Donkeys of Selva ‘an exquisite study of two animals with their saddle-packs, their rugs and trappings, the roundness of their bodies suggested by tiny flicks of the graver….”. Salaman in Modern Master of Etching (page 9).
Sheet: 7 1/2 in x 10 1/4 in. (19.2 cm x 26.2 cm.)
Plate: 5 1/4 in x 6 1/2 in. (13.1 cm x 16.4 cm.)
Mount: 11 1/8 in x 12 7/16 in. (28.3 cm x 31.5 cm.)
Austin was born in Leicester and studied at the local art school before taking up a place at the Royal College of Art, where he was later to become a tutor in engraving before taking over the Professorship of the Graphic Department. His prints of the 1920s and 30s were admired for their simplicity and clean lines and he led the revival of interest in engraving in Britain during the inter-war years. Austin found inspiration in the everyday – domestic scenes, landscapes, animals, and still lifes. A major exhibition of Austin’s prints and drawings was shown at the Royal Academy, London in 2009.
