Coast Cedars (2) - MARGARET PATTERSON - woodcut printed in colors

American, (1867-1950)

Woodcut printed in colors, undated but probably about 1920., Bakker 58, edition 100. 7 1/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed, titled and numbered (1/100) in pencil. This exceptional, vibrant impression is printed on the typical study, fibrous wove paper. There's a small spot of blue ink on the right edge of the image, most likely from the printing process. The margins are full apart from three small, similar rectangular cutaway areas on three sides. What sets this print apart is the depiction of snow on the tree limbs and foreground reflecting Patterson's interest in depicting changing seasons. We are not sure why the number (2) is next to the title but it most likely refers to this being the second version of the print, i.e. winter. This exceptional arts and crafts image was probably done on Cape Cod, about the same time she produced such notable works as Summer Clouds, Windblown Trees and The Sands, Chatham.       SOLD
