The Graveyard - WILLIAM GILES

Medium: woodcut with metal relief etching

The Graveyard - WILLIAM GILES - woodcut with metal relief etching

British, (1872-1939)

Woodcut with metal relief etching, 1910-20, edition possibly 50. 9 5/8 x 20 in. Signed in the block, lower left. Signed and numbered in pencil. This a very fine impression of this uncommon print. The condition is very good apart from two paper tape hinges on the top margin. Minor rippling along the top of the sheet. Full margins. Technically, Giles was amazing. He did a few pure woodcuts but he also eventually introduced zinc plate relief printing and they are difficult to tell apart. Both techniques are evident in many prints. He was inspired by Frank Morley Fletcher and William Blake. He became president of the Society of Graver Printers in Colour in the mid 1920's.      SOLD
