Morning Glories - MARGARET PATTERSON
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1925, Bakker retrospective catalogue #102a; intended edtion of 100. 9 7/8 x 7 1/8 in. Signed (twice) in pencil and also titled. This is a superb, luminous impression; the finest we have ever seen. The margins have been trimmed by the artist to about 1/4" on the top and sides and 1/2" on the bottom. The condition is excellent with the printed surface perfectly preserved. Certainly, the finest impressions of Patterson's woodcuts display a remarkable three-dimensionality. The intense work involved in rubbing the colors into the blocks is perfectly demonstrated here. The end result is almost sculptural. Due to the labor intensive nature of printing just one impression, and given the scarcity of her prints, we doubt that the full editions were ever printed.
