Singles sheet on thin paper 170 x 204 mm [image size]. Three colour lino-cut, titled and signed in pencil by the artist. Little is known about Stanley Hickson other than he was a talented graphic artist. He appears to have been a teacher in Leicester in the 1930s and may have moved to Canterbury after the war. These vibrant lino-cuts stand well against other artists of the period. I have been unable to trace any institutional holdings for these particular images, although a couple of others can be seen through on-line resources. View more info
