‘The Reaper’ by William Strang, RA, (1859-1921) in the collection of Anthony J Sargeant


‘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.
