Windblown Trees -  PATTERSON

Windblown Trees
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1920, Bakker 56a, edition unknown. 7 x 9 3/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, within the image. This is a superb, vibrant impression of this well known image. The print is trimmed along the edge of the image (by the artist) and attached at the top to a black paper support sheet which extends slightly beyond the print (also done by the artist). In addition, the print and black paper are mounted at the top edge to a sturdy, tan matboard-like support. This is the original presentation as prepared by Patterson and we've seen this approach before. The condition is excellent. As viewed on page 20 of the Bakker retrospective catalogue from 1989, there's an oil study for this image as well as a charcoal and white pastel drawing.

Coast Cedars (2) -  PATTERSON

Coast Cedars (2)
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, undated but probably about 1920., Bakker 58, edition 100. 7 1/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed, titled and numbered (1/100) in pencil. This exceptional, vibrant impression is printed on the typical study, fibrous wove paper. There's a small spot of blue ink on the right edge of the image, most likely from the printing process. The margins are full apart from three small, similar rectangular cutaway areas on three sides. What sets this print apart is the depiction of snow on the tree limbs and foreground reflecting Patterson's interest in depicting changing seasons. We are not sure why the number (2) is next to the title but it most likely refers to this being the second version of the print, i.e. winter. This exceptional arts and crafts image was probably done on Cape Cod, about the same time she produced such notable works as Summer Clouds, Windblown Trees and The Sands, Chatham.

Anemones -  PATTERSON

Anemones
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1920s, Bakker 99a, intended edition of 100. 9 7/8 x 7 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a fine fresh impression with rich colors. The margin are full and the condition is very good. (There are old hinges at the top corners and a thin layer of light tissue attached across the top edge of the sheet.) As is typical with Patterson's woodcuts, the paper is roughed up from the printing process primarily on the verso and also on the margins, recto, in a few spot. She favored a heavy, fibrous paper which helped her create an almost three dimensional effect with her images.

American, (1896-1978)
Screenprint, circa 1940, edition unknown. 14 1/2 x 11 1/2 in. Signed in ink in the lower right corner. This is a fine impression in very good condition. There's a faint suggestion of toning within an earlier mat opening and stray printer's ink has been touched in with white gouache on the right margin in one small area. (This was most likely done by the artist). Shokler was president of the National Serigraph Society and was one of the better early screenprint artists.

Rapport de Chaque Chose avec son Essence (From the COMPLETE SET of three prints) -  SURVAGE

Rapport de Chaque Chose avec son Essence (From the COMPLETE SET of three prints)
LEOPOLD SURVAGE
French, (1879-1968)
Linoleum cuts (or possibly woodcuts), 1935, edition 20. 10 3/4 x 7 7/8 in. Each print is signed, dated and numbered in pencil. Each in initialed in the block, lower right. They are superb impressions in fine condition with full margins. (Plate I has some rippling in the outer margins.) These surrealist style works are numbered I-III, II-III and III-III. Survage was a French painter and printmaker and studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. (He was of Russian-Finnish descent.) He was friendly with Alexander Archipenko, Albert Gleizes and Amadeo Modigliani. He also produced stage, tapestry and textile designs. He was influenced by André Masson in the 1930s. These potent works are rare as a set. We've seen them before individually and also numbered differently, suggesting additional small editions were printed. Survage was inducted into France's Légion d'Honneur in 1963.

The condition is very good apart from a skilful repair in the upper right corner of the sheet and a small repaired split in the lower right corner of the sheet. Both of these issues are well away from the image. This beautiful print appeared in the album "Etudes de Femmes" with a cover designed by Vallotton and including works by Toulouse-Lautrec, Hermann-Paul and others.
