IDBURY PRINTS

HESTER SAINSBURY (British / 1890-1967)

Hester Margaret Sainsbury was an artist, poet, playwright, and an innovative dramaturge who combined dance and rhythmic verse in an excitingly Modernist style. Hester Sainsbury was the second wife of Frederick Etchells, the Vorticist painter, architect, and publisher, and many of her published prints (wood engravings and copper engravings) were made for fine press books published by the Haslewood Press, run by Etchells and Hugh MacDonald. In style, and in their use of the multiple graver, Hester Sainsbury's engravings anticipate those of Mary Groom.
