Woodcut printed in colors, undated (circa 1920-30), edition unknown but certainly fewer than 100. 8 x 10 3/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower left. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is fine other than for minor toning in the margins here and there and stray ink from the printing process. This large work exemplifies her refined skills in the medium of color block printing.

Columbines -  ROYDS

Columbines
Woodcut printed in colors, 1930s, Barton 39, edition probably about 25. 7 3/8 x 6 1/4 in. This is a superb impression with full margins. (The margins are narrow on the sides and bottom but this is the original sheet which she chose to print on.) In addition, there is stray printers ink in the outer margins but this is part of the process and typical for Royds. This is an exceptional example of her work. Provenance: The Old Print Shop, New York.

The colors are fresh and vibrant. This is one of Royds's finest prints and her work is becoming increasingly difficult to find in today's market. (We sold this impression several years ago and are pleased to re-offer it.)

Honeysuckle -  ROYDS

Honeysuckle
Woodcut printed in colors, 1930s, Barton 66, small edition. 7 7/8 x 6 3/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a fine impression with full margins. The colors are especially fresh and there are no condition issues. This subtle, nicely-designed work is printed with more opaque colors than most of her block prints. Royds almost never dated her prints and the edition sizes remains a mystery to this day. They have always been a great value in today's market and are getting much more difficult to acquire.
SOLD

Orange Lilies -  ROYDS

Orange Lilies
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1925-30, edition unknown but probably fewer than 20 impressions. 9 x 7 1/2 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression with wide margins. The condition is very good. This particular woodcut is less common than other floral subjects that she produced.
SOLD

Sunspots -  ROYDS

Sunspots
Woodcut printed in colors, undated but probably cica 1910-15, Barton 4, edition unknown. 5 1/4 x 9 1/16 in. Signed in pencil, lower left. This is a fine impression with fresh yet subtle colors. The margins are narrow along the top and sides but we think this is the full, untrimmed sheet, as printed. This charming print is also quite rare. This is the first time we have had it.
SOLD

The Red Mug (Cyclamen) -  ROYDS

The Red Mug (Cyclamen)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1920s, Barton 57, small edition (probably fewer than 50). 5 3/8 x 5 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Inscribed "42" in pencil, lower right corner but possibly by another hand. A fine impression with probably the full margins. The condition is excellent. Royds' prints are consistently well-crafted and inspired. She produced about twenty floral block prints in all and they remain fresh and appealing to this day.
SOLD

Tulips -  ROYDS

Tulips
Woodcut printed in colors, 1930s, Barton 36; small edition. 8 7/8 x 7 1/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression of this rare print. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's a modest spot of printing ink in the image near the bottom.) Royds printed her own work and produced about sixty different images during her career. The floral prints were probably done between 1933-1938.
SOLD

Waterfall -  ROYDS

Waterfall
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1920-1930, small edition, perhaps twenty impressions. 10 1/16 x 11 1/2 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression in fine condition. The margins are full. This is her largest woodcut. It's also extremely rare and we haven't seen this print for sale since the 1980s. Royds is best known for her floral prints and the Indian subjects. This is a remarkable and exciting departure.
