Arthur Wesley Dow, Marsh Creek: After the 1907 woodcut by this esteemed Massachusetts native. Offered here is a wonderful archival pigment print matted and framed in black. 13 x 16 inches framed.
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art: “A leader of the American Arts and Crafts movement, Dow’s advanced ideas concerning color and design are beautifully conveyed by his woodcuts. Born in Ipswich, Massachusetts, the artist studied tonalist painting in France for five years then returned to Boston in 1889. Exemplifying Dow’s mature technique, no key-block was used in this print, and the landscape is formed from adjacent color zones. Printing the layers required great skill, and overlapping forms have been used to great effect.”
