Bibliography

The Lithographs of Charles Shannon 1863-1937. Catalogued compiled by Paul Delaney. Preface by Fenella Crichton. London. Taranman 1978. Printed in an edition of 400.

"And in A Lithograph in White Line, the lovely modelling of the slumbering Renoiresque woman is superbly set off by the vitality of the Symbolists lilies, curling out of the darness behind. Technically, this print represents one of Shannon's most original contributions. The skilful use of white line  to create the patches of light which so subtly animate the final print, ensures that it ranks aso one of the outstanding achievements of late nineteenth century English lithography"  page 14 of the preface by Fenella Crichton.
