Technique and condition
A woodcut monoprint originating from a series of ninety-six woodcut monoprints illustrating twelve images depicted in eight different variations.
The design was incised into a block of plywood with a chisel or large nail. The block was then cut up using a jigsaw and the separate pieces individually inked using four colours, three shades of blue and black printing ink. The blocks were reassembled to pass through the printing press. The print is in mint condition and stored mounted.
