Constance Tippet [late 20th century]


[From the Community Collection, a public trust in Agincourt, Iowa]

TIPPET, Constance [late 20th century; British]

“The Wharf” (top)


etching / 6.7 inches by 8.2 inches / A/P


Landscape, Rolling Hills (bottom)


etching / 7.8 inches by 8.9 inches / A/P

Ten years separate these two etchings by British artist Constance Tippet. Each offers a fragmentary landscape rendered in voluptuous undulating surfaces in a rich warm black, but the earlier print is a gently textured composition in the spirit of our own Grant Wood, while the second depends to a much greater extent upon bold line work and higher contrast.
