Hollyhocks -  HOPKINS

Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1910-13, Vasseur 38, edition unknown. 11 x 7 1/4 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a very good impression with full margins. The condition is fine other than for a small pinhole below the image, center. Four impressions of this lovely print are cited in the catalogue raisonne, including this one. This is a rare print.

Nicotiana -  HOPKINS

Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1909, Vasseur 47, small edition. 10 7/8 x 7 1/8 in. Signed in pencil and numbered "9" lower right. This is a superb impression in fine condition. The colors are fresh. Full margins. This impression was exhibited at the Columbus Museum of Art in the 2006 exhibition American Impressionism: Variations on a theme. (It's illustrated on page 47 of the exhibition catalog.) This impression is also cited in the just published catalog raisonne. Provenance: Hirschl & Adler Galleries, New York.

Petunia -  HOPKINS

Woodcut printed in colors, 1907-08, Vasseur 51, edition unknown. 7 x 4 5/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a good, subtle impression printed on thin wove paper. The margins are narrow and the print is attached at the top corners to a support sheet, probably done by the artist. The condition is very good apart from glue spots from the verso showing at the top two corners in the front. This is a rare, early pencil signed proof without the chop mark which later appears in the lower left corner of the image. There was a small edition published in The Bibliophile Magazine, 1, no. 6 (August 1908) facing page 287. Those show a circular chop mark which is different from Hopkins' red peapod chop. This impression is cited in the catalogue raisonne'.

Phlox (also known as White Hydrangea) -  HOPKINS

Phlox (also known as White Hydrangea)
Woodcut printed in colors, about 1907-8, Vasseur 53, highest known numbered impression is 41. 10 3/4 x 7 1/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower left. Signed with the peapod chop in the lower right of the image. Unnumbered. This is a fine impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full with three tack holes showing on the right edge of the sheet. The condition is excellent. Impressions are in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Columbus Museum of Art, among others.

Purple Asters -  HOPKINS

Purple Asters
Woodcut printed in colors, about 1910-13, Vasseur 57, edition at least 27. 10 3/4 x 7 1/8 in. Signed and numbered "11" in pencil. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on a light beige Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is generally quite fine. (There's a small stain the in the lower left corner of the margin.) This very rare work beautifully combines a variety of vibrant colors on the top of the composition and subtle understatement in the bottom half. This daring composition and inventive mix of colors shows the artist as a master of the arts and crafts color woodcut, particularly as observed in her floral prints. The Bibliothèque Jacques Doucet in Paris owns a series of seven color-block separations (progressive proofs) numbered 1-7.
