The Sunne Rising - William S Taylor


William S Taylor (1920-2010)
The Sunne Rising
Etching on paper, c.1953

Although based on Taylor’s own garden in Devonshire, this atmospheric etching stretches the boundaries of reality, and the scene is infused with strong neo-romantic overtones. Inspired by works by Samuel Palmer and William Blake, the artist brings a dream-like feeling to the landscape, mixing nostalgia and mystery. The figure in the doorway is Taylor’s wife Audrey, who made frequent appearances in this works.
