This beautiful pair of etchings by British artist Percy Lancaster (1878-1951) depict a lady in two positions. In the first, she’s standing with head bowed and hands clasped. It’s a moment of reflection, almost prayerlike. While in the second, she’s seated and looking ahead with interest - mouth slightly open as if she’s about to talk. In both, the lady wears a long orient-inspired robe, which Lancaster has etched skilfully.
Both etchings are signed in pencil, framed and glazed.
