Framed ETCHING: Titled "THE TWO TREES" 1911. by Hans Heysen to John Shirlow.
This is one of the few etchings by Hans Heysen.
Sir Hans Heysen, OBE (8 October 1877 – 2 July 1968) was a German-born Australian artist. He became a household name for his watercolours of monumental Australian gum trees. Heysen also produced images of men and animals toiling in the Australian bush, as well as groundbreaking depictions of arid landscapes in the Flinders Ranges. He won the Wynne Prize for landscape painting a record nine times.
The fact that this particular ETCHING is signed by Hans Heysen as a gift to his friend John Shirlow would suggest the prestige of this particular Etching.
