About the work
Ethel Spowers was born and trained as an artist in Melbourne. With studies in Paris and London she began exhibiting in 1920. Her work is held in many collections including The V&A, The Art Gallery of New South Wales and The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa.

“Wet Afternoon” was one of a series of linocuts made following her studies at The Grosvenor School of Art, London under Claude Flight, a linocut pioneer. Her work was strongly influenced by Japanese woodcuts. Many of her linocuts show the activities of children. The dynamism of these compositions shows her devotion to modernism which she promoted in the face of traditionalist critics. There is an elemental joy in the composition, subject and colour which resonates even today around a hundred years later.

This is a museum-quality archival print made using materials which will last for many years.
