The Operating Theatre Etching by Edgar Holloway


A rare etching by Edgar Holloway entitled 'Operating Theatre' produced in 1937. This print had no edition but only four impressions were printed before the plate was destroyed.

The image was created from a drawing produced by Holloway at the Mansfield Hospital operating theatre which was then modified before the etching was made.

Artists Biography

Edgar Holloway (1914-)

Edgar Holloway was born in Doncaster in 1914. He largely taught himself the art of printmaking from books, although he did attend evening classes at Doncaster School of Art, and later during the 1930's at the Slade in London. His first one-man exhibition was held at the Twenty One Gallery in 1931, and since that time has had his work purchased by the British Museum on a regular basis.

Influenced by the writings of Eric Gill, Holloway visited Capel-y-ffin in the early 1940's where he met (and within six weeks) married Gill's model Daisy Monica Hawkins.

During the 1950's and 60's he made his living drawing maps and designing book jackets, only resuming etching in 1968. Since that time his reputation as a printmaker has grown steadily culminating in a major retrospective at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.
