Around 1930, Sybil Andrews, then a member of the modernist Grosvenor School of printmakers in England, produced several images of hunts on horseback and jumping competitions, such as Water Jump, In Full Cry and Steeplechasing. As Thomas Rassieur notes, “Movement – coordinated, directed, and energetic – made sport an ideal arena for exercising the modernist impulse of the Grosvenor School linocutters.” After the First World War and the influenza epidemic, public interest in physical fitness was on the rise, and there was admiration for the attainment of the ideal body through athleticism. In images such as Steeplechasing, uniformity of dress and the elimination of details of features placed all the emphasis on the pattern of movement. Sleek, streamlined and stylized, Steeplechasing fully evinces the dynamism of horses and riders hurtling through space.
This fine, richly coloured impression, on buff oriental laid tissue, is from the original edition of 50. A second edition of 60 for the USA was begun in 1932, and one of 60 for Australia was planned, but then canceled.
