Herbert Dicksee

“Ready” SOLD

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. "Ready" is a lovely example of this Herbert Dicksee etching. It is a 1st state artist's proof signed in pencil lower left and limited to 325 copies. It is signed "H..D.." and dated 1928 on the plate lower right. It is mounted and framed in a simple oak frame giving an overall size of 17"x 23".
