Albany E. Howarth was a self taught born in the English County of Durham in 1872. At the young age of five years old Albany knew that he wanted to be an artist and pursue that career even though his father had wanted Albany to go into business. It was not until  1908 that Albany had begun producing etchings due to his discovery of Phillip Gilbert Hamerton's book on etchings and the proper technique. This book was originally published in 1868 and when Albany discovered it; it revolutionized his artistic path teaching him a new medium of which he would be best remembered for.

Howarth has since been remembered for his beautiful architectural etchings but had also worked in watercolor which are generally rare to come across. He has had works on display across England at different university's and many pieces go through auction.

This etching in particular is entitled "Priors Doorway Ely" (in plate) and is a very fine example of Howarth's etching and architectural skills. This etching shows the front doors open to the Ely Cathedral which is located in Cambridgeshire, England built during the 11th century. This etching was produced in 1911 and is very rare being part of a limited edition of only 54 signed impressions. 

This etching resides in its original frame and is in good condition with slight overall toning. The frame has some slight cosmetic wear and a label on the reverse reading "Scruggs Vandervoort Barney St. Louis" which was a department store where it was originally purchased which adds some provenance. The etching has a very minor puncture in the middle top of the etching which is unnoticeable unless under close scrutiny and a easy fix.
