Ludwig Heinrich von Jungnickel, Pantherkopf
Colour woodcut, 1916
This is the first image I chose for this new project, a really stunning colour woodblock print by one of the masters of the medium. It was published in 1916 in the Vienna art revue Die Graphischen Kunste. Jungnickel made two different versions of this print - this one with the white background, and a second one with an orange background. You can compare the two in the informative post on L. H. Jungnickel at Modern Printmakers.
I'm still intending to keep this blog up, and have quite a few posts in the works, but the simpler nature of Twitter and Facebook should enable me to communicate with more regularity. So if you like, please follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or even both.
