Poppies and Convolvolus - MARGARET PATTERSON
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, 1920s, Bakker retrospective catalogue # 95, intended edition of 100. 7 1/4 x 10 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression with notably fresh colors. The margins are full and the condition is fine. Certainly, the finest impressions of Patterson's woodcuts display a remarkable three-dimensionality. The intense work involved in rubbing the colors into the blocks is perfectly demonstrated here and 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.
