Julian Trevelyan, grandson of historian Sir George Otto Trevelyan, OM, FBA, left Cambridge to take up painting in Paris in 1930, where he was also a student of printmaking in the influential workshop of Stanley William Hayter. After painting in styles linked with Expressionism and Surrealism in the 1930s, he returned to greater naturalism and a renewed commitment to etching in the 1950s. This example demonstrates his mastery of linear effects and subtle variations of texturing.
