A British etcher and painter of the 1920’s era, George Soper is widely known for his rural and farming scenes and working horses. Soper first studied art at Ramsgate and spent the early part of his career as an illustrator. He began studying etching under Sir Frank short in 1905. Soper’s etchings are considered to be among the finest of their time and he was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy as well as being a full member of the Royal Engravers. Both the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, include examples of his etchings in their collections.
