Label
In the 1970s and 80s, Dorothea Wight produced a series of mezzotints featuring hazy, dream-like landscapes that are framed as if seen through a window. The title of this print invokes the landscape of Devon, a county in southern England where Wight was born and raised. After studying painting and printmaking at the Slade School of Fine Art in London from 1964 to 1968, Wight founded Studio Prints which published fine art print editions for many leading British artists until cancer forced Wight to close the business in 2009.
