Lot of 7 Buckland-Wright Engravings for Pasiphae, 1950

Lot 129: Lot of 7 Buckland-Wright Engravings for Pasiphae, 1950

Auction Date: Sep 13, 2018

Estimate: $850 - $1,100

Description: John Buckland-Wright (British, 1897-1954), copperplate engravings on Montgolfier paper, several sheets with watermarks, for "Pasiphae: A Poem by A.S. Swinburne", Golden Cockerel Press, 1950, ed. 500. Seven copperplate engravings including the frontispiece from Victorian poet Algernon Charles Swinburne's "Pasiphae" which was not published during Swinburne?s lifetime, most likely because of its risque sexual theme. Swinburne's poem presents the interaction between master craftsman Daedalus and the Minotaur?s mother, the Minoan Queen Pasiphae, who was according to legend cursed with an voracious desire to mate with a beautiful bull. Size: sheets measure 11" L x 7.5" W (27.9 cm x 19 cm)

Born in Dunedin, New Zealand on December 3, 1897, John Buckland-Wright studied architecture at Clifton and Oxford; however, in 1924 he rejected an offer for an architectural partnership to become an artist. He elected to settle in Brussels where his mother and stepfather lived - a very good decision since in the mid 1920s, Belgium hosted a flourishing community of artists. In 1929, he moved to Paris to work with Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17, oftentime stepping in as lead for Hayter. In 1939, Buckland-Wright returned to London and taught at Camberwell followed by the Slade School after 1952.

Buckland-Wright's oeuvre focused on printmaking, and he illustrated several books published by private presses. Quite a few, including these "Pasiphae" engravings, were of an erotic nature. Buckland-Wright?s work is represented in the collections of the Museum Meermanno in The Hague, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Tate Gallery. In addition, the British Museum was given a sizeable collection of his work following his death on September 27, 1954.

⁂ "A simple tale, as evanescent as the scent of wild thyme, into which Phyllis Hartnoll wove the mingled ecstasy and heart-break of young lovers. The sunshine and shadow of their April love that triumphs over all obstacles and outfaces death." Cock-a-Hoop

In her letter Phyllis Hartnoll comments on the illustrations, "...They are...so entirely in the spirit of the story. I particularly liked the title-page, the cock-fight, the one on the ship and the one of the lovers together. But they are all beautiful, and I shall cherish my copy of the book very much...".

⁂ " The specials have a chaste beauty that is truly Greek in feeling". Reid

"John used to laugh at the thought of what the worthy Dr Arnold would have said about this love-book translated and illustrated respectively by two old Rugby boys. A neo-puritan reviewing for a literary weekly advised its readers not to suppose for one moment that the engravings had any value as art. Some literary pundits are rather jaundiced in their appreciation of graphic artists' work, philistine in their judgements of it, and terrified by nudity in any form." Cock-a-Hoop
