Turn of the Road
1879-1955, British

This colored woodblock print by British printmaker A. Rigden Read measures 14 7/8 x 10 1/2 inches. It is numbered, titled and signed in pencil on the lower margin. Read was born in the working class area of London. Little is known about him but during his studies he did travel to Japan and learned the art of the woodcut. He produced many of these in the 1920's and the predominant theme of his work was the itinerant worker making a living in the local countryside. This image titled "Turn in the Road" is one of his few landscapes.
