The Witches Fire -  MOONY

The Witches Fire
Woodcut printed in colors, 1925, small edition. 8 1/4 x 10 1/2 in. Signed, dated, titled and numbered "6" in pencil from an unknown edition. This is a superb impression with full but typically narrow margins. The condition is very good other than thin paper attached on all sides around the margin edges which we feel has been there from early on. Moony produced wonderful color woodcuts which relate to children's tales set in picturesque landscapes. More research needs to be done on this fascinating artist.
