Some further information on this work - we have a copy of this from a portfolio of the artist's prints.
The artist's name is Joza Belohorsky (Born in Austria as Joseph Svasta) but he is usually regarded as a Czech artist, and lived in Prague in the 1930s.
He came to England in 1939 as he was anti-Nazi and his second wife was Jewish. He settled in England, living in Cornwall and then Sussex.
His precise birth and death dates are not known.
The date of the etching is definitely not 2015 - it was most likely made in St Ives around 1942, although works from the folio span 1938 to around 1943.
