Medium: woodcut printed in colors

Mountain Burn - IAN CHEYNE - woodcut printed in colors

Scottish, (1895-1955)

Woodcut printed in colors, undated (probably done in the 1930s), edition probably 20. 11 1/2 x 9 3/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. With the number "2" in pencil to the right of the title. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The margins measure about 5/8" on the top and sides but this is probably the full sheet as printed. There's incidental inking at right and below in the margins from the printing process, all well away front the image. Cheyne studied at the Glasgow School of Art and he began exhibiting his woodcuts in 1926 with the Society of Artist Printers in Glasgow. His unique style has an art deco look to it and he was definitely influenced early on by the Japanese printmakers. His work is rare today. His wife, Jessie Isabel Garrow, was also a printmaker. (Mountain Burn is located in Glen Lyon, Perthshire, Scotland.)      SOLD
