Unicorns

October 1950
Wood engraving
Image: 4 3/4 by 3 1/8” 

B. 371

 

The Asselbergs owned The Unicorn Press, and were well known art patrons in Holland. Escher's Regular Division of the Plane was printed on their press.  This Escher print was given by the Asselbergs to their friends to celebrate the New Year of 1950 to 1951. 

Unicorns represents the most basic technique of creating different shades in a woodcut. Simple stripes varying in width and proximity give rise to five different shades of Unicorns.

This original woodcut is in excellent condition and framed. Adorn your wall with six exotic, single-horned equines. 

Please email or call to inquire.
