Anemones - MARGARET PATTERSON
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, undated (1920s), Bakker 99a, intended edition of 100. 9 7/8 x 7 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on a fibrous, off white Japanese paper. The margins are full. The condition is quite good. This is a rare, annotated proof before the formal edition. The artist has made pencil annotations in the margins referencing difference colors for possible changes, ie. "black," "white," "dark green," etc. This is the completed image, but as is so often the case with arts and crafts era woodcut artists, they are always thinking about the next impression and how they might make color adjustments. We have never seen a Patterson print like this and consider it a unique opportunity.
