Birds in the Bloom
1907-1982, British/American

This c. 1950 wood engraving by Nora Unwin measures 7 x 5 3/4 inches. It is pencil signed, titled and numbered on the lower margin. It is not in the McGoldrick catalogue. Born into the well known Unwin book publishing family in England, Nora showed her artistic talents from an early age and was schooled heavily throughout her early years in numerous creative arts. She studied at the RCA in London before coming to the US in 1946 and is credited with much of the revival of wood engraving in America in the early part of the 20th century.
