During his many years in Holland he traveled in an elaborate houseboat called De Zwerver where he kept his printing press and worked on site as he docked along various rivers and canals. His travels began in 1894 and ended in 1940 with the onset of WWII. He is often remembered as the first European artist to visit Bali, and did so more than once.

Grandmother's Flowers (actually known as Garden Flowers) -  PATTERSON

Grandmother's Flowers (actually known as Garden Flowers)
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1921, Bakker 90, intended edition of 100. 10 1/4 x 7 1/4 in. Signed in the image in pencil and signed and titled in pencil below on the support sheet. This is a fine, vibrant impression with fresh colors. The print is trimmed to the image and mounted to a sturdy card stock support which was clearly done by the artist. The condition is very good. For some reason Patterson titled this print differently. The intense work involved in rubbing the colors into the back of the sheet from 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.

In the High Hills
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)

This lovely impression is one of so many color variants seen in not only this print but in most of Patterson's oeuvre. She was an avid experimenter with color from one block to the next.

The margins are full. The condition is fine apart from three pieces of paper tape on the verso edges which were intended as hinges. This exceptional Cape Cod scene with the winding waterway reflects the enduring influence of Arthur Wesley Dow. (Patterson studied with Dow at the Pratt Institute in New York beginning in 1895.)
