I came across this image in a book called the Art of the woodcut : masterworks from 1920s by Malcolm C. Salaman. It is titled Pauwies by Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita (1868-1944) who was a printmaker and graphic artist, teaching in Germany before the Second World War.  One of his pupils was Mauritius Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) during the years after the war he became forgotten.  Thanks to the efforts of Escher, who regarded him highly as  friend and mentor, for a while he did receive some attention.  

I like this very much and would like to find out more about him …
