Sir Muirhead Bone British, Scottish

Not on view

Sir Muirhead Bone was a Scottish printmaker and watercolor artist noted for his depictions of architectural subjects, city views, landscapes, in addition to his work as a war artist during both the First and Second World Wars. After 1901, Bone worked in the drypoint printmaking technique almost exclusively; for the next decade, Bone found subjects primarily in England and Scotland. This small print shows the market town of Arundel in West Sussex, England, as viewed from the banks of the River Arun. Dominating this charming scene at the right is the town's Catholic parish church originally dedicated in 1873 to Our Lady and St. Philip Neri (later renamed Arundel Cathedral). This church is regarded among the finest, distinctive examples of French Gothic Revival style architecture in Britain. At the far left, a tower of the historic Arundel Castle is visible. With a few deft strokes of his drypoint needle, Bone skillfully captured the town's character and major landmarks.
