Description: Sir Hubert von Herkomer CVO (1849-1914) British painter of German descent, and also a pioneering film-director and composer. Though a very successful portraitist, especially of men, he is mainly remembered for his earlier works that took a realistic approach to the conditions of life of the poor. Hard Times, showing the family of a travelling day-labourer at the side of a road, is probably his best known work. Original etching, title "The Poacher's Fate", plate signed, image approx. 14 x 10-1/4" plus margins. Done c. 1880. Herkomer etched this print after one of his own paintings.
