Found another image sold at auction ,but they don't call it a engraving. They called it just a print and I called mine an engraving?Still couldn't find a bio.

The artist could be Emile Wilkin.
The work you posted could be an ink drawing or a lithograph more than an engraving because :
a) there is no number on the paper;
b) there isn't the classic "pressed edge" (I don't know the right word in english).
You would have to check it with a lens , to understand if it's an offset lithograph (you see separated points) or not ; if not , it could be a lithograph without numeration or an ink drawing. But in this case is quite difficult to understand the difference. Maybe you can try to see the sheet toward a source of light but it could not be enough.

Hello Angelo and thx for the info.Yes there are no plate marks ,which did lead me too ink drawing ,but so many crosshatch lines under magnification lead me away from ink drawing,lithograpth and left me with little other choices. I will look more into Emile Wilkin and other examples of his work.I did see the signature of Emile Wilkin and it looked a bit stylist defendant. I greatly appreciate the time you took in researching.I guess I'll just call it a intaglio print.
