The Fox Woman - BERTHA LUM
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, 1916, Gravalos / Pulin 38, edition at least 197. 16 1/2 x 10 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression with fresh colors. The margins are narrow but probably full. The condition is fine apart from soft rippling here and there at the sheet edges. This lovely print provides an elegant and refined visualization of the age-old role of the fox in oriental folklore. This theme is discussed in the catalogue raisonne entry for this print on page 96.
