25 cm x 25 cm

Woodcut on Japanese paper


A rare Australian native flower woodcut printed by Preston c1925.

An inscription on the backing board written by Preston states “Cut by myself on Beech (wood) and printed by hand. Many Thanks for the Book, (Signed) Margaret Preston”

Although we do not know who the print was intended for, the inscription provides a brief but valuable insight into the process of Preston’s iconic works.

The work is in good condition. It is signed, titled and numbered in pencil in the lower margin.
