Ernest Warner (1879-1968)
Warner studied printing and commercial art and opened his own studio in London before moving to Australia in 1911. After a short time he moved to New Zealand working as a commercial artist until 1919. From 1922 he was active and attained recognition for his print making. In 1930 his daughter began to help in the studio preparing plates and printing, and in 1936 he was joined by his son, who printed many works. In the mid 1930s Alfred Warner and his wife travelled in a caravan around NSW, Victoria and Queensland collecting material for his prints. He does not seem to have made any etchings after 1938.
