John Farmer Printmaker

A visit to the McClellan gallery in Langwarren is certainly recommended. 
There is a small but wonderful exhibition of work by John Farmer  (1897-1989) small, sepia-toned print. Some drypoint, softground etching and aquatint. Traditional subjects - landscapes, a self pro\\ortrait, a pine cone - all exquisitely done. They are tiny - one more than 6 inches square - but very detailed an traditionally etched beautifully printed on toned paper. His work is said to have been inspired by the Dutch masters.
