Las Rejas, Toledo [Spain]

1927. Etching, signed in plate lower right, signed, titled and annotated “mat on Japanese vellum, [proposed edition of] 100” in pencil in lower margin, 26.2 x 20cm. Repaired perforation to left edge and margin, slight foxing to lower centre, old mount burn.

Ref: Mendelssohn #423. Held in NLA; Te Papa (NZ); and AGNSW with the comment, “Lindsay was an inveterate traveller with a passion for southern Spain and made many etchings on the subject. He first visited there in 1902, full of romantic preconceptions of Spanish life fostered by his reading as a young man. He came to love the sun-parched landscape and the customs, food and way of life of the peasants with whom he lived and worked, but most of all the Moorish architecture and other remnants of Arab influence in the south.”
