A rare survival, (blocks are frequently discarded, or shaved down for re-use), these blocks offer an insight into the artist's working methods. From a design point of view they are amongst Brangwyn's most direct and successful compositions and a perfect expression of the extraordinary graphic vigor with which he created work. The blocks were cut by Brangwyn himself.

We are grateful to Dr. Libby Horner for assistance.  This image will appear as no. V 3601 in her forthcoming catalogue raisonne
