Self Portrait - CECIL BULLER - wood engraving

Canadian, (1886-1973)

Wood engraving, 1949, Ainslie 53 (iii/III); edition 25. 10 1/16 x 8 1/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression of this uncommon print. The paper is a japanese and the margins are full. The condition is excellent. This work was made on the occasion of Butler's entry as an associate in the the National Academy of Design. As Ainslie states, "The whole image has a dream-like quality that is reinforced by the pensive attitude of the face. Symbolic elements and sections of earlier prints appear behind the portrait, suggesting her relationships with those particular works and with the recurring elements of her thoughts and subconscious mind. (See Cecil Buller, Modernist Printmaker, Glenbow Museum, (1989), page 42.      $1,800
