This is a beautiful authentic Arts and Crafts original woodcut print by Arthur Gaskin RBSA, which also is titled and fully signed by Gaskin himself. A fabulous thing to have. Maybe a present for a lucky sister from another sister?It is ready to gift now, as it has just been framed and will also come with picture hook etc for hanging it. This fabulous and striking original woodcut print in black is of two sisters and is such an evocative image. I love the angular features of the faces which just nudge at Art Deco styling too.
Wonderful to have a piece of such special art and the added treasure is that Gaskin not only signed in pencil underneath the image, but he also titled it too. Size of inked area approx. 7.5cm by 4.5cm. The size of the framed picture is approx.
26.5cm by 23.5cm. It is a painted black wooden frame, with matt black card for the passepartout. It's a lovely combination. Definitely worth having as an investment as Gaskin's name is always connected to quality and to the finest of craft / jewellery-making traditions.
The provenance of this piece is that it was with the family of H G Murphy until very recently, when I acquired it. Murphy (his friend) was a fellow designer in the same era and is also a name that is highly sought after. Rest assured this is an authentic piece.
I actually bought several of these so if you need another / more... I will package very carefully and post with international tracked and signed from here in Italy.
