‘Chepstow from the Cliff’, Etching, 1928


Titled, signed and inscribed ‘1st state, 6 proofs only’. Printed on laid paper.

Webb adored the British countryside. Whether driving or walking, he never failed to be 'absorbed and enthralled'. In search of suitable subjects for etchings and paintings, he travelled that Summer (1928) to Gloucestershire and southeast Wales...Crossing into Wales, Webb set out on the Wye Valley Walk. In Monmouthshire he made drawings for 'Chepstow from the Cliff' and 'Chepstow', both etched in 1928. Strategically positioned high on cliffs above the River Wye, this magnificent Norman castle is among the oldest stone-built castles in Britain. - Robert Meyrick
