Between 1931 and 2002 Holloway made thirty-three etched self-portraits, more than any other British printmaker. The most widely re-produced, this portrait (his sixth) demonstrates his early technical virtuosity. In common with his other prints it is based on an original drawing from life. This etching first appeared in Studio magazine in 1934 and was shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in the same year.
