More Info Art

Ronald Sydney Embleton (1930 – 1988) was a British comics artist and illustrator whose work was much admired by fans and editors alike.
In the 1950's he struck out on his own and was drawn to classic & adventure illustrations and his works were published in magazines, comics, children's and classical books. He was completely versatile and recognizable every time.

Victorian times were a natural source of imagination for him and he retold stories from Charles Dickens, Treasure Island, Mother Goose rhymes and even down to the street games children were playing. This print titled 'HopScotch' is one of a series he made in the 1970's that covered a range of games children were playing.

These portraits are so full of life, action, antics; each telling a story of a captured moment in time in delightful detail. Looking closely at the subject's faces, some are concentrating, others look mischievous or distracted. It was a time when kids were on the streets for hours playing marbles, hop scotch, skipping etc & coming home with skinned knees and rosy cheeks.

This has the original frame and the matting has some water marks but the print is in good condition.
