Graham Robertson Color Prints
Abbott and Holder, the London dealers, recently exhibited a group of color prints, together with some of the original blocks, executed by W. Graham Robertson, in imitation of Blake’s monotype technique. Robert Essick has already drawn attention to their existence in his last review of the London sales (Newsletter 38). In addition to the information he provides, it should be noted that Graham Robertson, like Blake, appears to have taken three impressions from each block, the experiment having been occasioned by the exhibition of his work, held at the Carfax Gallery in 1906. The Tate Gallery has acquired one of the prints, Paolo and Francesca, and the British Museum now owns two impressions and the block for Girl in a Landscape (SL 10 March 1975, no. 125).
