The Paintings of Enrique Serra

“CONSTANCE” (WATER-COLOUR PRINT FROM WOOD-BLOCKS)

BY JOHN D. BATTEN

resting from the point of view of direct decorative
treatment, and the use of fluid and thick colour
combined. In the choice of subjects simple effects
are aimed at by them, the quality, for the most part,
depending on the application of the colour. A
great fascination these prints possess is their trans-
lucent-like surface, akin to that of water-colour.
In the prints of Mr. Sydney Lee, Mr. J. D. Batten
and Mr. Laurenson we find a sober treatment of

colouring with a fine
sense of line. Mr. Alfred
Hartley is an artist
steeped in the secrets of
his art. Full of fancy,
deep tones and varied
effects, his work should
appeal to the art lover and
collector. The qualities
of his grounds contrasting
with the soft line treat-
ment form the chief
pleasure of his work as an
etcher.

Sydney Lee’s wood-block prints.—The Editor.)
