This is an incredibly detailed, atmospheric Norwegian landscape of a small cabin at the edge of a fjord, the distant hills fading into a soft morning mist.

Print

Little Porcupine
1922-2000, American

This wood engraving by Leonard Baskin measures 1 x 1 inch, printed on a sheet size of 17 1/2 x 17 inches. Published in 1951, this unsigned proof is #124 in the Fern and O'Sullivan catalogue. After serving in the Navy during WWII, Baskin began his career as a printmaker in the late 1940s, beginning with simple linocuts, but quickly progressing to dramatic wood engravings, then later etchings and lithographs. Known for his graphic images created by the simple interplay of black on white, combined with his dramatic use of line, Baskin remains one of America's greatest printmakers.
