Frank Brangwyn (aka Sir Frank William Brangwyn) (1867–1956)
“London Docks” (descriptive title only), 1919, woodcut on fine Japanese paper, published in an edition of 230 copies in Paris by Helleu et Sergent as an illustration to Emile Verhaeren’s (1855-1916) “Les Villes Tentaculaires” (Sprawling Cities).
Note that the central figures in the foreground also feature in Brangwyn’s lithograph, “London Docks with St Pauls”.
Size: (sheet) 29.1 x 23 cm; (image borderline) 16.7 x 13.3 cm.
Condition: a strong and well-printed (near faultless) impression in pristine condition with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions, losses, stains, foxing or signs of handling.
I am selling this simply magnificent woodcut showing dock workers handling cargo—note how the artist has been able to incorporate an almost seamless transition from black to white lines in the rendering of the centre foreground figure—for the total cost of AU$195 (currently US$134.98/EUR125.95/GBP112.45 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
If you are interested in purchasing this incredible woodcut—possibly a proof impression based on the absence of binding marks—please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
