From a study in pastels by Harold Speed. An original 1899 print

A wonderful lithograph print of a pastel picture by Harold Speed showing a lady embroidering. This is an original print from 1899 taken from ‘The Studio” complete with protective paper.

This print has been carefully taken from the Original 1899 edition of ‘The Studio’ Volume fifteen, One of the most iconic collections of artworks. Finely printed on a high-quality paper. The Studio books were an outward expression of the developments in the Arts and Crafts movement.

Size: 28cm Height x 20cm Wide

The Studio books were an illustrated collection of Fine and Applied Arts published in London from 1893 until 1964. The founder and first editor was Charles Holme. The magazine exerted a major influence on the development of the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements.

The artwork from the "Studio" has been selected by scholars as being culturally important and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. This print which we offer for sale is an original printed in 1899. Therefore, you will see the original copyright references, library stamps and other notations in this print.

About the Artist: Harold Speed (11 February 1872 - 20 March 1957) was an English painter in oil and watercolour of portraits, figures and historical subjects.

Born in London, the son of Edward Speed, an architect, he studied architecture at the Royal College of Art, but soon took up painting, and continued his studies at the Royal Academy Schools between 1891 and 1896, winning a gold medal and a travelling scholarship in 1893. In 1896, he was elected as a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1893, and held his first one-man exhibition in 1907 at the Leicester Galleries. His work was part of the painting event in the art competition at the 1928 Summer Olympics.[1] In 1930 he provided paintings for the new chapel of Wesley House, Cambridge.
