This is a gorgeous, richly detailed triptych wood engraving, image size 7 x 12 1/4 inches, published in an edition of 200, 1971, pencil signed. The delicate lines, strong contrast and energetic composition bring an extraordinary lifelike quality to the wild plants in this image, making them seem as if they are spilling forth from the page.
