Etching on paper, the sheet 6 3/4" by 9", 12 1/4" by 14 1/2" framed, the subject a group of children floating playfully on a makeshift raft, pencil signed at lower right by noted English artist and illustrator, author and poet EILEEN SOPER (1905-1990). The work is titled, I believe, "Voyage of Discovery". Eileen was the daughter of artist George Soper. By 1920 she had submitted work to the Print Makers of California, and it was chosen for exhibition. Soper joined the Royal Academy in 1921, and continued to receive recognition throughout her life. Queen Mary acquired a piece for her private collection. Soper went on to become a member of the Royal Watercolors Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, and Royal Scottish Academy. Her prints, often featuring children as the primary subject matter, as seen in this example, are very popular with collectors. This example is currently floating free under the mat and will be shipped between boards. There is some old mat browning, a tiny short edge tear to top and corresponding tape stains on reverse top edge, and a roughly round area of brownish discoloration at lower right quadrant, as seen in the images. Allow for reflections in several images.
