John Norris-Wood FRCA (1930-2015) - Contemporary Woodcut, Garden Butterflies



A wonderful contemporary woodcut print by John Norris-Wood, the distinguished natural history illustrator who taught at the Royal College of Art. Norris-Wood was one of the few natural history artists whose work transcends the purely informative, and this highly colourful and stylized botanical composition shows off his imaginative style. On handmade, natural fibre paper (Japanese Unryu paper). Inscribed with the print number '19/20'. Signed.


In fine condition.
