A versatile wood engraver, Frank Hill has captured the varied textures of the dancers’ clothes and their vivacious movement in this skilful wood engraving. Further than this, he has highlighted the sense of drama through the introduction of the border pattern which he has created towards the edges of the block. Spanish Dancers is a lively and inspired piece of original wood engraving.

On smooth simile Japan paper with full margins. Very good original condition.
