Four original ink and watercolor works by the eccentric artist and visionary. All of the works date to his time at the Slade School of Art in London (1921). Subsequently, he returned to his family's home in Curridge. and spent the following year in the New Forest, visiting gypsies and painting many of the local inhabitants. These images appear to date from such expeditions and are quite different from his homo-erotic images of young boys, for which he is primarily known. These works are from the collection of Anthony Reid, who acquired them directly from Chubb's surviving sister Ethel. The works are all initialed by the artist and dated 1921; one of the works bears the sitter's name (Harriet Boyes). The works are all uniformly matted and are in good condition, light wear and a few stray marks. They are generally 5" x 6" (several are a bit larger). Please inquire for further details.

Ralph Nicholas Chubb was an English poet, printer and artist. Heavily influenced by Whitman, Blake, and the Romantics, his work was the creation of a highly intricate personal mythology, one that was anti-materialist and sexually revolutionary. This is a woodblock print from his Woodcuts book published in 1928. The image is printed on an off white paper not used in the edition (9" x 12").
