*Arthur Gaskin returned to producing woodcuts when he went to live in Chipping Camden after he had retired from the Vittoria Street School for Jewellers and Silversmiths in 1924. Having produced many fine illustrations for commercial publishers and private presses, he had given up book illustrations (finding it did not produce sufficient income) around the turn of the century, to concentrate on designing jewellery and silver. In 1903 he became headmaster of the Vittoria Street School. These late prints are scarce. There do not appear to be any published editions. The artist gave 12 woodcuts to the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1927. No institution in Birmingham appears to hold any. "Mr Arthur Gaskin's shows a more expressive manner in such prints as 'The Snowstorm' and 'Gathering Winter Fuel' which lately secured his election for the Painter-Etchers and Engravers.". Salaman, C. 'The Art of the Woodcut: Masterworks from the 1920s'. "The move, in Gaskin's late woodcuts, to a simpler, direct approach is most masterfully described in James Laver's short piece called 'Campden' in The Studio. Vol. XCV, 1928 pp. 352-3; the reader cannot do better that consult this. Gaskin uses both black line on white as in 'The Bull Ring' and white on black, the latter almost ascetically in for example, 'Pam'. Apart from the evident influence of Eric Gill, there is an echo of Lucien Pissarro in a work like 'The Flood'." George Breeze in GASKIN (1981) p. 50. GASKIN (1981) refers to 'Arthur &Georgie Gaskin' City Museum and Art Gallery, Birmingham &Fine Art Society. Exhibition Catalogue. 1981.

As the maid keeps them happy, they scour the pot, cook the vegetables, wash up, sweep and hush the child.' The size of the paper used is most closely to that described by Harris for the Third and Fourth editions.

*There are no copies listed on Copac. It is rare to find these engravings in their original parts. Hogarth became familiar to a German audience chiefly owing to the influence of George Christoph Lichtenberg [1743-1799], who had purchased a collection of engravings from the artist's widow, which he later sold to Gottingen University. Lichtenberg published a series of commentaries on Hogarth's prints in 'Gottinger Taschen-Calender' from 1784 to 1796. Ernst Ludwig Riepenhausen [1765-1840] provided engravings from Hogarth's works, but because of the small format of the Calender they were on a reduced scale illustrating just details such as heads and expressions. In the 'Sammlung Hogarthischer Kupferstiche', which when completed consisted of 88 plates, Riepenhausen was able to copy the engravings in their entirety. Some critics consider some of his copies are superior to the engravings made by Hogarth himself. See, Griffiths, A &Carey, F. 'German Printmaking in the Age of Goethe' British Museum, 1994. The prints are: Hours of the Day, Industry and Idleness, Rake's Progress, Harlot's Progress, Marriage-a-la-Mode, Strolling Actresses Dressing in a Barn and A Midnight Modern Conversation.
