Edgar Holloway (1914-2008), Painter and print-maker
Sitter in 3 portraits
Artist of 7 portraits
Largely self-taught, Holloway learned to etch from books and manuals and was influenced by the self-portrait etchings of Rembrandt, Whistler and Augustus John. Like John, he used self-portraiture as a means of exploring different aspects of his personality, sometimes adopting an alternative persona.
