The Tawny Owl - JEAN ARMITAGE
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
British, (exhibited 1919-1938)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1925, edition 50. 10 3/8 x 8 in. Signed, numbered and titled in pencil. Here we have a fine, luminous impression with full margins. The condition is fine apart from old hinges at the top two corners, a small spot of foxing to the right of the image and a subtle little repair in the lower left corner below the title. The influence of Japanese printmaking is here in evidence. Her work is executed with great skill, especially as seen here. She studied with the illustrator J.D. Batten at the Byam Shaw School of Art and exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours. This information was provided by the British Museum and they own two example of her woodcuts.
