The Great Spires - BIRGER SANDZEN
Woodcut, 1922, Greenough 44, edition unknown. 16 x 12 in. Signed and titled in pencil and initialed in the block. This is a fine impresion of a large, early work. The condition is very good apart from very slight darkening around the image from an early mat and there's a subtle scrape just touching the image at top. There are also old paper hinges at the top. The margins are full. In this print the artist did some additional work in black in to heighten the shadows in the mountain crevices. Sandzen sometimes worked with a nail to cut his woodblocks.
