Rose with Vine and Bud -  PATTERSON

Rose with Vine and Bud
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut, 1947, Bakker Retrospective catalogue 112b, small edition. 6 1/4 x 4 3/8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a superb impression of this very rare work. The margins are trimmed to the borderline (by the artist). The condition is fine apart from a small ink smudge in the blank area at left, probably which occurred during the course of the printing process. This endearing work is Patterson's last recorded woodcut and this impression is illustrated on page 36 of the Bakker catalogue.

Summer Flowers -  PATTERSON

Summer Flowers
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1920s, Bakker 100a, intended edition of 100. 10 1/4 x 7 1/8 in. Signed in pencil in the image, lower right. Signed titled and numbered just below the image. This is a superb, luminous impression of this rare print. The margins measure about 1/2" all around but this is most likely the full, untrimmed sheet as printed. The condition is fine apart from a small strip of scotch tape on the verso edges, top and bottom. This does not affect the front of the sheet in any way. The paper is Patterson's typical sturdy, somewhat thick Japanese paper which is especially well-suited for intensely rubbing the colors onto the paper from the back of the sheet.

Poppies and Convolvolus -  PATTERSON

Poppies and Convolvolus
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1920s, Bakker retrospective catalogue # 95, intended edition of 100. 7 1/4 x 10 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression with notably fresh colors. The margins are full and the condition is fine. Certainly, the finest impressions of Patterson's woodcuts display a remarkable three-dimensionality. The intense work involved in rubbing the colors into the blocks is perfectly demonstrated here and the end result is almost sculptural. Due to the labor intensive nature of printing just one impression, and given the scarcity of her prints, we doubt that the full editions were ever printed.

Geometric Abstraction  -  PEETERS

Geometric Abstraction
JOZEF PEETERS
Belgian, (1895-1960)
Linocut on grey paper, 1921, edition unknown but certainly small. 7 7/8 x 6 3/4 in. Unsigned. This is a fine proof impression before the monogram in the lower left corner. The paper is a gray wove and the margins are somewhat irregular. The condition is fine. This compelling image was published in the set "Map met 6 Linos" (1921) by De Sikkel. Complete sets are exceedingly rare today and these proofs are before publication. This work epitomizes the Belgian avante-garde printmaking aesthetic of the 1920s which relies on bold geometric images often interspersed with typography and strong color combinations. Peeters, along with Edmond van Dooren, Floris Jespers, Victor Servranckx and others, defined a national movement which is also evidenced in their paintings and the occasional sculpture. Provenance: Flor Bex, former Director of the Museum of Contemporary art in Antwerp and a celebrated author on this subject.

JOHN PLATT
British, (1886-1967)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1922, Chapman 9; projected edition of 100 impressions. 8 x 10 3/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The paper is a medium-weight Japanese and the margins appear to be full, measuring about 3/4" on all sides. (The edition was never completed and just 78 impressions were recorded.) This dramatic work beautifully conveys the waves crashing against the rocks at this famous locale in Cornwall, England.
