Old Road: Elegy for the English Elm I

$800.00

Description

Robin Tanner began working on this etching in 1974 when the Dutch Elm disease was considerably advanced.  This plate is a lament for the Dutch Elm—and a celebration of the 17th Century poet Thomas Traherne’s line, “Everything was at rest, free and immortal.”  The gateway overgrown with dog-roses is similar to that used in Tanner’s earlier work, Martin’s Hovel, and the milestone is from one at the Wiltshire village of Sutton Benger.
