Ships at Anchor -  STAMMESHAUS

Ships at Anchor
Dutch, (1918-1985)
Woodcut printed on Japanese paper, 1959, edition 30. 14 1/4 x 13 3/4 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. A fine impression. Full margins. Some staining in the outer margins but overall quite fine. He was a member of "De Brug."

Anemones -  URUSHIBARA

Japanese, (1880-1953)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1915, edition probably 100. 12 x 7 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Here we have a superb impression with the colors especially vibrant. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. Urushibara's best work was a group of floral woodcuts of which this is a notable example. The artist moved to England at a young age and lived there as well as in France until 1934. He was very active with the European color woodcut artists at the time and collaborated with Frank Brangwyn on several prints.

Chrysanthemums -  VON BUDDENBROCK

German, (early 20th century)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1925, edition unknown. 10 1/8 x 9 3/4 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression in very good condition. There's some ink staining in the margins which is the result of the printing process. The paper is thin Japanese and the margins are wide and probably full.

The Pageant of April -  WRINCH

The Pageant of April
Canadian, (1877-1969)
Linoleum cut printed in colors, 1933, Durham Art gallery page 22, edition unknown. 12 1/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression. The condition is very good apart from a repaired tear in the upper left corner margin, apart from the image. Wrinch is one of Canada's finest block print artists but she is not as well known as Walter Phillips, especially here in the U.S. She was born in England and moved to Ontario in 1885. She studied with G.A. Reid at the Ontario College of Art and they later became husband and wife. Wrinch began as a painter and began making linoleum cuts around 1928. Ultimately, she became best known for her prints and produced around forty different images. Florals and landscapes were her subjects and they were printed from multiple blocks in small editions, perhaps ten or twenty impressions. Her work has a distinctive arts and crafts look based on great design, color and execution. We are actively seeking to acquire her work and we hope to present more of her prints in the future.
