Hill Country

1938. Colour linocut, annotated “P/25 [proof], linocut”, dated, titled and signed in pencil in lower margin, 26.3 x 37.7cm. Slight foxing to image centre, crinkles, mount burn.

During the 1920s Ethleen Palmer studied art at East Sydney Technical College under Rayner Hoff. She exhibited watercolour landscapes in 1929 with the Society of Women Painters and the Australian Art Society, and “it was not until 1933 that Palmer showed her first linocuts at the Society of Arts and Crafts. Throughout the remainder of the ’30s she continued to experiment with various printing mediums, developing a complex linocut printing technique which allowed for the subtle gradation and overlay of colour…This marked the pinnacle of her artistic career, both in terms of recognition – by 1939 she was represented in all major state gallery collections – and in technical and aesthetic accomplishment.” Ref: DAAO.
