Framed Stipplework Waterside scene by John Hull Grundy MBE FRES FRSA
A renowned name in medical illustration, (Prof.) John Hull Grundy was also an entymologist, teacher, anatomist, author and artist of considerable repute, exhibiting throughout his life and notably in 1976 at the Royal Army Medical college where his full range of works – done in his trademark stippling style – were on display. His wife, Anne Hull Grundy (nee Ullmann) was also a signifcant figure in the art world, a collector and benefactor whose bequests and donations can be found in substantial quality and number.
This framed print of a waterside scene is a nice example of Grundy’s delicate and meticulous stippling technique. Measuring 21.5cm x 17.5cm (8½ in. x 6¾ in.) inside a frame 33cm x 37.5 (11 in. x 14¾ in.) the work is complemented by a pale green mount. We rather like the presentation but also think that a contemporary re-framing and re-mounting of it would do a lot to enhance what is a very striking piece.
SORRY, SOLD OUT!
