Description

Description: In this wonderful art-related autograph letter signed, Blampied expresses his pleasure in receiving an advanced copy of “The Print Quarterly” containing, apparently, a complimentary article about his art (“I’ve been walking on air all day”). He also writes: “…did you notice that Campbell Dodgson is editing a complete catalogue of my etchings…I have won a ‘special real gold medal’ at the ‘Paris International’ (whatever that may mean) for lithographs…the man who printed my lithographs…used to print for Whistler….”

Edmund Blampied (1886-1966) was born and died in Jersey in the Channel Islands. He is most noted for his prints which he published in the 1920’s. He, however, had a full career as an illustrator, cartoonist, and artist in oils and watercolors. His works are in a host of international art institutions which include: the Brooklyn Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, British Museum, Rijksmuseum.
