Ploughing in Lombardy

1899

[etching]

James Hay

A slight departure has been made from the usual custom in that the plate is not the product of a photograph, as in former years, but an etching from a water-colour drawing by our Junior Vice President, Mr James Hay.

1900

In Largo Bay

JB Johnston

Ready for distribution: January 1900 to any members presenting their receipt attached to their membership cards to the Housekeeper.

There had been a suggestion that the presentation print should be an etching from a water-colour drawing by James Hay, rather than a photograph - but EPS appeared to not proceed with this.

Instead, they selected a negative by J B Johnston from which he produced a platinotype print entitled 'In Largo Bay' that won the Silver Medal in the 'Landscape, Seascape and Architecture' section of the 1898 Exhibition.

1901

A Stilly Hamlet Home that vies
With any Earthly Paradise

James Patrick

The presentation print, now available, is made from a negative of James Patrick, a carbon print from which gained the gold medal (the highest award) in the open class for landscapes, seascapes and architecture in the Society's Annual Exhibition during the session.

[TEPS:  Feb 1901, p.62]

1902

When the Evening Sun is Low

RS Webster

A print from this negative won the highest award some years ago.

1903

On a Dutch Shore

J Craig Annan

 

1904

The Venetian Fruit Seller

Percy Lewis, Clifton

The Presentation Print, available from early 2004 was a photogravure from a negative by Percy Lewis Clifton, the print being the work of T & R Annan & Sons, Glasgow.

AGM 1904:  sanctioned the discontinuance of the Presentation Print on the grounds that it was not appreciated by many of the Members.  Instead, the cost of the print (£11 p.a.) is to be paid by EPS to the Art Union for the purchase of pictures from the Society’s Annual Exhibition - to be given as prizes. 

 Prizes to be:

-  1 x £3 gns

-  1 x £3 gns

-  2 x £3 gns

-  7 x 10/6d

Prize-winners may select prints to the value of the prizes they have won.

1905

NO PRESENTATION PRINTS.

See comments from AGM 1904 above]

 

1906

NO PRESENTATION PRINTS.

 

1907

NO PRESENTATION PRINTS.

 

1908

Trinity College and Church and adjacent area  -  now covered by Waverley Station

DO Hill

The November 1907 Transactions of the EPS said it was expected that the Presentation Print would be ready for the first Meeting; but through unforeseen circumstances it was ready in time.

The print subsequently became available during 1908.  Copies of this print were offered for sale at 2/6d each.

I have not found any reference to any Presentation Prints after 1908, and am surprised that one was issued in 1908 in view of the comments made at the EPS Annual General Meeting in 1904 when it was decided to create an EPS Art Union, rather than continue to issue Presentation Prints. 

The years in this table above refer to the years in which the print was distributed to EPS Members. e.g. 1885 Print is the print that was distributed early in 1885 to those who had paid their 1884-85 subscriptions.
