L is for ... Animal Woodblock ABC

L is for ... Lion

The King of the Jungle, the big cat - surely there must be plenty of woodblock prints of these beautiful animals. If I was doing the alphabet for etchers, then I know I could rely of on Herbert Dicksie for big cats - but what other printmakers tried ?

Straight in with a classic printmaker..........

Norbertine Bresslern Roth (1891-1978)
Forsale at Annex Galleries for $2100


and another Bresslern-Roth at www.joseflebovicgallery.com

Christopher Wormell b1955
from his series of original woodcuts
"The New Alphabet of Animals"


and a classic Japanese woodblock prints...............

and a modern Japanese print by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)
