The Fisherman

Robert Sargent Austin (1895 - 1973)
The Fisherman 1927-8
Engraving
The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, Ohio


Austin, born in 1895, tried to ignore the stress and turmoil ( First World War 1914-1918 & Second World War 1939 -1945 ) by holding fast to traditional, medieval modes of expression and subject matter.
