Wednesday’s women wood engravers

November 12, 2014

La Rigole du Lampy by Jane Roquet is a print quite different from those I have featured of late.  Its is described by Patricia Raffe as ‘a shimmer of light … as liquid as a scraper board drawing’. Also the decorations by Helen Knapp are different. Those by Lettice Sandford are influenced by the work Eric Gill who she admired.  I know nothing of these women engravers and would value any glimpses into their lives and inspiration.
