Sickert N.E.A.C., Walter Richard (1860 - 1940)
'Mother and Daughter' (RB171). Etching. 1915. Third State. Printed in red ink. Ex. Collection: Enid Bagnold. This print is based on a drawing of the same subject dated 1911 (Private Collection), which was published in 'New Age'. The drawing also became the basis for a painting. 6x3.5 inches. Framed: 13.5x9 inches.

‘Baron [Wendy Baron] reports that Sickert drew a sketch of this picture [his oil of the same subject] in a letter to Miss Hudson and wrote to her: “I am deep in two divine coster girls – one with sunlight on her indoors. You know the trompe l’oeil hat all the coster girls wear here with a crown fitting the head inside and expanding out to immense proportions. It is called an ‘American Sailor’ (hat).” Ruth Bromberg, ‘Walter Sickert Prints’, Yale, 2000, p.212.
