Wiston River -  FLETCHER

Wiston River

Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1900-1905, edition 100. 8 3/8 x 14 1/2 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a very fine, vibrant impression printed on a light cream colored Japanese style paper. The margins are modest but this is possibly the full sheet as printed. The condition is fine.

This stellar early work was done in his native Lancashire, England. Color variations exist with this and his other prints which add much diversity to his rather limited oeuvre. There's no formal catalogue raisonné of his woodcuts but there's an excellent article by Nancy Green in the following: Second Impressions; Modern Prints and Printmakers Reconsidered, edited by Clinton Adams, volume 16 of the Tamarind Papers, 1996, University of New Mexico Press, pages 37-48.
