‘The Reaper’ is an etching made by William Strang in the late 19th Century. It is one of some 25 etchings by Strang in the collection of Tony Sargeant. Most are in a portfolio and unframed although there is a famous portrait etching of Laurence Binyon which is framed and hangs in the stairwell of his Shropshire home.

Giuseppe Mazzolini 19th Century Oil on canvas in the collection of Anthony J Sargeant

Tony Sargeant bought this many years ago in a provincial auction. In an ornate carved giltwood frame it was titled – “Cherubs playing in a landscape”. It amused at the time – But What is going on? Thinking now of de-acquisitioning – perhaps through Bonhams.
