Robin Tanner (1904-1988) ''Christmas'' Signed, inscribed ''final state'' 1929, etching, 35.5cm by 28.5cm See illustration Artist's Resale Rights/Droit de Suite may apply to this lot, please refer to our Terms of Business ''My etched world is also an ideal world - a world of pastoral beauty that could be ours if we did by desire it passionately enough…'' Robin Tanner Born in Bristol, the son of a carpenter. Later moving to Chippenham in North West Wiltshire, Robin Tanner attended the grammar school there and spent a year in the town as a student teacher. In 1922 he went up to London to study teaching at Goldsmiths' College and subsequently took up a teaching position in Greenwich. During this time Tanner returned to Goldsmiths' to attend evening courses in etching. In 1926 a visit to a major retrospective of the work of Visionary and Neo-Romantic artist Samuel Palmer at the Victoria and Albert Museum proved a seminal moment in his life. Palmer's almost mystical vision of the English pastoral landscape - with his depictions of moonlit cornfields and the like - would serve to set the young artist on the path he would follow for the rest of his career. After completing his first etching in 1926 - A Tithe Barn - Tanner increasingly focused on art and he became part of the revival in English etching that was emerging at the time. In 1928 he returned to Wiltshire to etch full-time and produced some of his finest works, such as Martin's Hovel and Harvest Festival. However, the market for etchings crashed soon after this move, caused by the economic depression of 1929 and the growing dominance of photography as the preferred medium for illustrations in printed material. Setting aside a career as an artist, Tanner returned to teaching having married his childhood sweetheart, Heather, and settled in Kington Langley near Chippenham. Tanner had a passion for teaching fine art, was a great exponent of arts, crafts, poetry and music in schools, and from 1935 to 1964 was an H. M. Inspector of Primary Schools - a role in which he excelled. However, throughout his career he continued to pursue other private artistic endeavours and publishing several books with his wife. Following his retirement in 1964, Tanner once again dedicated himself to printmaking. His highly detailed etchings depicting pastoral scenes in North West Wiltshire are infused with an otherworldly atmosphere - at once timeless depictions of English rural life and idealised, often wistful scenes of a changing world. Lots 1-13 formed part of the collection of the late James Fairbairn of York, a colleague and firm friend of Tanner's. James was a fellow H. M. Inspector of Schools and made many trips to visit the Tanners' home in Kington Langley and in 1978 organised a holiday for Robin, Heather, Dietrich Hanff (a Jewish refugee adopted by the couple) and himself to York, Northumbria and the Scottish Borders. The etchings came directly into Fairbairn's collection from Tanner by gift and purchase; whilst many items from the collection were dispersed by bequests in Fairbairn's will, the current vendor received the substantial residue.

Description:
Robin Tanner (British 19041988) Wiltshire Roadmaker Etching Signed in pencil Image: 10 x 15cm (4 x 6in.) Robin Tanner (1904-1988) was an English artist, etcher and printmaker working in the English Neo-Romantic tradition. Inspired by a Samuel Palmer retrospective exhibition in 1926, Tanner took up etching at night-school classes at Goldsmiths College, London. As H.M. Inspector of Schools between 1935-1964 Tanner shared his passion for teaching fine art with young children throughout the country, believing that the study of natural things and exploration of art, music and poetry were essential for the development of teachers and children. Upon his retirement in 1964, Tanner again turned to full-time print-making, as well as the publication of a number of books on print-making aimed at children, in collaboration with his wife, Heather Spackman.
