Arthur Briscoe
Modern (19th century-1945) Graphic Arts
(1873 - 1943)

Briscoe (1873 - 1943) studied at the Slade School of Art in London and then in Paris. After finishing his studies he bought a boat and sailed the British and north European coasts. He painted maritime scenes in oils and watercolours and also began etching. The print publisher H. C. Dickins promoted Briscoe's etchings and they became very popular, selling out on subscription and soon making good prices at auction. The subjects of his 189 etchings, all made over a ten year period, were almost exclusively of maritime subjects, except seven which include two portraits of his friend James McBey.
