Excellent impression with strong, even inking. Artist’s proof aside from the normal edition of 50 numbered impressions.

Summer Bouquet is one of the outstanding examples of Iain Macnab’s technical genius as a wood engraver. Rarely is his dynamic power as a draughtsman seen to greater effect than in this inspired work. Iain Macnab’s innovative treatment of the white-line method is tempered with a masterly touch to produce an image of cohesive sculpturesque forms, united into a composition which is both lively and striking in its effect.

On smooth simile Japan paper, with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
