D is for ... Animal Woodblock ABC

Following on from Cats  - yes you have guessed correctly

D is for ... Donkey

Come on; it is Christmas, it would not be the same without a few Biblical references and donkeys are cute.

Mabel Royds (1874-1941)

Helen Hyde (1869-1919)

Emily Gray Koehler
a contemporary artist, selling from her etsy store

Court House Yard c1910
Gustave Baumann (1881-1971)
found in the collection of Indianapolis Museum of Art

This was a difficult posting to put together. I am sure there are many more woodblock prints out there with Donkeys in them, but as they are often not the main subject they are listed. Some help please. All those pictures of the "Flight into Egypt" there must be more woodblocks, wood engraving or linocut, other than Mabels Royds' picture !!
