Isabel de Bohun Lockyer was one of the few artists outside the Grosvenor School to use linocut for colour printmaking in England at this time. Printing in water-based inks, her linocuts have the appearance of colour woodcuts. A number of her works depict views in Switzerland and Dalmatia.

On soft simile Japan paper with full margins and deckle edge. Some creasing at extreme upper corners of sheet, otherwise generally good original condition.
