Wednesday’s woman wood engraver …

March 4, 2015

I have mentioned Mary E. Groom (1900-1968) before in a previous blog post and while she also exhibited in the Oxford Museum in 1979 I know little of her. Except that she studied at the Leon Underwood School of Painting and Sculpture.  She was also a founder member of the English Wood Engraving Society. Shortly after completing her training she returned to her family home and little is known of her until   in 1936 when she produced 30 wood engravings for Paradise Lost and 12 for Roses of Sharon for the Cockerel Press.  

I like her style and would like to find more works.
