The Bridge - BJO NORDFELDT
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, 1906, Donovan/Brown 8; edition unknown. 8 1/8 x 10 1/4 in. Signed, dated and numbered "No. 117" in pencil. This is a fine impression with narrow margins to just around the borderline, so typical of this print. The condition is also fine. (There's a tiny speck of foxing at the borderline, upper right and a very subtle soft crease in the lower left corner of the image.) This lovely print appears in multiple color variations which is a concept Nordfeldt mastered with great effect. He was an experimenter. While spending time in Paris studying French woodcuts he became aware of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints which inspired him throughout his career. Furthermore, he studied with Frank Morley Fletcher while in England. Nordfeldt was living in Chicago in 1906 and this work was likely inspired by his time in Sweden where he was born. Impressions of this print are located in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
