Bartlett was a British artist who studied at the Royal Academy and the Académie Julien in Paris, working extensively in Europe and later in Japan where he became heavily influenced by traditional Japanese woodblock prints and collaborated with the influential print publisher Watanabe Shozaburo (1885-1962) to create his trademark fusion style.

 

Lot 1100, Estimate £5000 - £7000

 

In 1917, Bartlett and his wife left Japan planning to return to England, but visiting Hawaii en-route, they became entranced and never returned to England. Instead Bartlett found inspiration in Hawaii, producing amongst others, this iconic image of surfing, an ancient sport synonymous with Hawaii, where it is believed ‘stand-up surfing’ originated. The print was made 1919 and is the rarer second state, estimated at £5000-7000, we anticipate a wave of interest for it in our sale on August the 6th and 7th.
