Portrait etching of the artist Eric Malthouse wearing a felt hat and a scarf
Stunning etching of Eric Malthouse , a fellow artist at the Royal College of Art. Robert Ball has captured the delicate aesthetic features of the sitter to perfection. As was common at the time , portrait etchings concentrated on the facial features and not on the body and clothes.
Executed at the R.C.A. where both artists were students in 1937
