Purple Asters - EDNA BOIES HOPKINS - woodcut printed in colors

American, (1872-1937)

Woodcut printed in colors, about 1910-13, Vasseur 57, edition at least 27. 10 3/4 x 7 1/8 in. Signed and numbered "11" in pencil. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on a light beige Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is generally quite fine. (There's a small stain the in the lower left corner of the margin.) This very rare work beautifully combines a variety of vibrant colors on the top of the composition and subtle understatement in the bottom half. This daring composition and inventive mix of colors shows the artist as a master of the arts and crafts color woodcut, particularly as observed in her floral prints. The Bibliothèque Jacques Doucet in Paris owns a series of seven color-block separations (progressive proofs) numbered 1-7.      SOLD
