Winchester Cathedral


Sir David Young Cameron (1865-1945), Winchester Cathedral, etching and drypoint, 1925, signed in pencil lower right [also signed in the plate lower left]. Reference: Rinder 471, fourth state (of 4), from the edition of 65. In good condition (slight scuffing lower right, right margin irregular since paper was apparently taken from a book, a stain bottom margin away from image, remains of prior hinging verso), 16 1/8 x 10 3/4, the sheet 18 1/4 x 11 3/8 inches.

A fine rich impression printed on old laid paper.

Winchester Cathedral is one of the largest in Europe, famous for having been saved from collapse in the early 20th Century, as the burial place of Jane Austen, and as the subject of a popular song in 1966.
