T is for .. Animal Woodblock ABC

T is for ... Tiger

There are some brilliant relief prints of tigers - such a strong angular, almost architectural beast with a striking colour and pattern with a graphic quality. A beast made for artistic study.

So here goes ............ starting with one of the original prints that inspired this series. Not a Bresslern Roth as the auctioneers guaranteed .......

John Dickson Batten
(1860-1932)


.... and some real Norbertine Bresslern Roth (1891-1978)
completely different composition styles. Batten's flat and very graphic, whilst Bresslern-Roth's are full of life and 3 dimensional. Both are excellent works of art.
