Tiffany’s Research Notes on “The Glade”:

This lyrical work by Norman Lindsay, an original Aquatint and Etching, was created in 1934, towards the end of Linday’s etching career.

“The Glade” is beautiful in its simplicity and romanticism. Norman Lindsay bathes the young women in warm sunlight filtering through the trees as they shelter in the forest glade, either contemplating a swim or having just been for one.

In this beautiful piece, Lindsay used the difficulty Intaglio technique of Aquatint to create the dappled effect of the light on the trees and the general soft tone of the etching which complements the delicacy of the women’s skin and the light hearted feel of the work.

Original aquatints of “The Glade” are held in the collections of the Queensland Art Gallery, the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, the National Trust Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum and at the Mitchell Library in Folio Four of Norman Lindsay’s etchings and documents which were compiled and donated by Norman’s wife and print-maker, Rose Lindsay.
