This is a very scarce etching by Welsh artist Augustus John.  The subject is a Portrait of Benjamin Evans,  Benjamin Evans is thought to have been etched during Augustus John’s stay in Liverpool, where he taught at the University from 1901-1902.  This image is pencil signed by the artist and has a platemark measuring 5X4 inches.  Very richly printed some very light but even toning to the sheet.  This etching was not published in a formal edition until issued by Knewstub through his Chenil Gallery in 1906, when 25 proofs were printed from this plate. The plate was then cancelled. This image appears in the CD catalog as image number 14.
