John Atherton’s Mill  

Original wood engraving.

Very good impression from the only edition of 75 signed and numbered proofs.



One of the earliest contributors to the Society of Wood Engravers and a respected teacher of wood engraving technique, John F. Greenwood is best known for his skilfully rendered landscape subjects. His imaginative use of the white-line technique is particularly well suited to capturing the effects of light and shadow, enhancing both the mood and the remarkable sense of perspective found in all of his engravings.
