January: Hunting An Almanac of Twelve Sports
London: William Heinemann, 1898. Archivally double-matted and framed in 1 inch black Eastlake-style moulding with conservation glass. Sized to 15.5 x 17.75 inches. First printing Fine A Fine original color-printed lithograph. Quarto (9.75 x 12.25). Archivally double-matted and framed in 1 inch black Eastlake-style moulding with conservation glass. Sized to 15.5 x 17.75 inches. William Nicholson (British 1872-1949) gained notoriety as a beloved portrayer of British Victorian culture with his dignified caricatures of both the pillars of society and the lay folk. His woodcut portraits of Queen Victoria, James McNeill Whistler, and Rudyard Kipling, from which this print was inspired, were both traditional yet innovative. Referencing the subculture of the late 19th Century Parisian Cafe society through the poster advertisements, and the work of Toulouse-Lautrec, Nicholson's mid-tonal compositions honored the void as well as the light. His revolutionary technique of carving away wide sections of block introduced a modern perspective to the traditional art of portraiture, caricature and book illustration.
