Henry Rushbury at the Royal Academy

If you do have a chance to visit the Royal Academy to see the Summer exhibition, there’s a small exhibition of Henry Rushburys drawings, watercolours and etchings. I almost overlooked it but as soon as I walked in the Tennant Gallery, his drawings of cities and street life drew me in. Beautiful etchings and drawings! I was blown away by his draughtsmanship. I particularly like the image below entitled ‘Study for Forging a Big Gun, Sheffield, 1941.
