Although Austins formidable reputation was secured by his line engravings of the mid to late 1920’s it was in the 1930’s that Austin produced some of his most attractive engravings, – often featuring single figures engaged in domestic activities – Young Mother, (1936) Girl on Stairs, (1937), and Girl by a Gate (1938). Girl Brushing Her Hair, which forms part of this series, has the added attraction of including the artist’s dalmation, who was the subject of a celebrated print title ‘Ling of Lingard’ dating to 1936.
