Herbert Dicksee

“Fire Worshippers”

18"x 26"

Herbert Thomas Dicksee was a British painter born in 1862. He was best known for his sensitive depictions of animals including dogs, lions and tigers. Dicksee’s family was well-ingrained into the art world; his father was an artist and his nephew, Sir Frank Dicksee, was the president of the Royal Academy in London from 1924–1928. Herbert went on to study at the Slade School of Art in London on a scholarship, and his first painting was exhibited in 1881. Many of Dicksee’s most famous works were transcribed into prints and etchings published by Klackner of London. He died on February 20, 1942 in Hampstead, England. The present picture "Fire Worshippers" is the 1st state Artist's proof etching on vellum. It measures 18"x 26" and is signed lower left in pencil. It is mounted into the original frame giving an overall size of 28"x 36". A fine early example of one of the best Dicksee etchings.
