Monhegan (Maine) - MARGARET PATTERSON
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1920-23, edition 100. 7 1/4 x 10 3/8 in. Initialed in the block and signed, numbered and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression of this uncommon print. The condition is very good and the margins are probably full. (The top margin is narrow but it also has a deckle edge. This is the way it was printed.) This Hopperesque Maine image is illustrated on page 50 of The Imprint of Place, Maine Printmaking 1800-2005 (2006) by David Becker. Patterson did related oil and watercolor studies of Monhegan Island in the early 1920s. Given the rarity of this and many other Patterson woodcuts, it's highly unlikely that the entire editions were printed.
