Irish, (1879-1946)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1925, small edition. 8 1/4 x 10 1/2 in. Signed, dated, titled and numbered "6" in pencil from an unknown edition.

Moony produced wonderful color woodcuts which relate to children's tales set in picturesque landscapes. More research needs to be done on this fascinating artist.

He is known to have produced the vast majority of his fifty or so prints between 1924-1938.
