Description / Expertise

Linocut, one of two companion prints (the other is entitled "Up with the Lark"). Each signed in pencil.
Printed in black and grey-blue, and hand-coloured on the reverse and applied to an oatmeal backing, a process invented by Mackey.
Mackey trained at the Slade before the First World War, in which he served with the Royal Army Medical Corps on the Western Front, as an Official War Artist.
After the war he worked principally as a book illustrator and printmaker, but he also exhibited paintings in France and from the 1930’s taught at Walthamstow School of Art.
