CLARE LEIGHTON (1898-1989)

These proofs were given by the artist to Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953) whose
‘Woodcuts – examples of the work of Clare Leighton …’ was published by Longmans, Green and Co, in London, New York and Toronto in 1930 and was instrumental in the international spread of her name. They were presumably selected because he particularly liked them or, and, Clare Leighton wanted him to have particular prints. 

We acquired them from a direct descendant of Belloc, unmounted and in a small folder.

MH: Martin Hardie compiled a chronological list of wood engravings by Clare Leighton at the end of his article ‘The Wood Engravings of Clare Leighton’ published in Print Collectors Quarterly, vol.XXII, 1935,pps.139-165
