Salinas River - California -  FLETCHER

Salinas River - California
FRANK MORLEY FLETCHER
British/American, (1866-1949)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1927-28, edition 100. 12 3/4 x 16 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is good. (There are three small areas touched in with gouache(?), almost certainly by the artist, and faint traces of soiling in the water.) The importance of Fletcher both in England and later in America cannot be overstated. His seminal publication, Wood-Block Printing, published in 1916, had a lasting impact on many printmakers who explored the color woodcut medium. He came to America in 1923 and settled in Santa Barbara where he taught at the Santa Barbara School of Art. He became a naturalized citizen in 1926. This large print is an iconic arts and crafts California woodcut.

Outposts -  GILMOUR

Outposts
LEON GILMOUR
American, (1907-1996)
Wood engraving, 1936, edition 50 plus artist's proofs. 7 x 11 3/4 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. This is a very good impression printed on a fibrous, Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's a modest printing crease just to the edge of the image at top right.) Gilmour, like Rockwell Kent, was a visionary thinker and his images often suggest an Orwellian, futuristic look. "Outposts", with the reference E=mc2 showing in the image at left, projects an expansive world view where technology and the masses can interact for better or worse. His stylized imagery, like Kent's, is very well-crafted and shows a timeless, ongoing respect for the human figure.
