    More Information:

    The Junior Etching Club was a prestigious organization instrumental in the revival of etching in England. "Passages from Modern English Poets, was issued (undated) by Day and Son, in 1862, in a large octavo. In 1876 another edition in large quarto, with etchings transferred to stone, and printed as lithographs, was published by William Tegg. In this notable volume Millais is represented by Summer Indolence, a most graceful study of a girl lying on her back in a meadow with a small child, who is wearing a daisy chain, seated at her side. Mr. J. McNeill Whistler contributes two delightful landscapes, The Angle and A River Scene There are many other good things in the book- a Tenniel, War and Glory, four capital studies by Henry Moore, etc." (White, English Illustration).
