John Bulloch Souter: Epping Forest

  • This miniature etching done in quick lines was most likely executed en plein air by the artist. Though small, it is full of charming little details of people walking, some are buying something from a cart, others are sitting on a tree log, there is a church in the distance.

    Souter was trained at Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen and the Alan Fraser School of Art, Arbroath. A travelling scholarship allowed him to work extensively on the continent. After WWI, he had established himself as an RA exhibitor, and in the period after the war he made a name as a portrait painter. He also experimented with printmaking and created a small number of printed works, mostly etchings.
