Salinas River - California - FRANK MORLEY FLETCHER - woodcut printed in colors

British/American, (1866-1949)

Woodcut printed in colors, 1927-28, edition 100. 12 3/4 x 16 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a good impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is good. (There are three small areas touched in with gouache(?) certainly by the artist, and faint traces of soiling in the water.) The importance of Fletcher both in England and later in America cannot be overstated. His seminal publication, Wood-Block Printing, published in 1916, had a lasting impact on many printmakers who explored the color woodcut medium. He came to America in 1923 and settled in Santa Barbara where he taught at the Santa Barbara School of Art. He became a naturalized citizen in 1926. This large print is an iconic arts and crafts California woodcut.      SOLD
