Place Of Origin

Sybil Andrews became one of the best-known of a group of artists connected with the Grosvenor School of Modern Art, London, who specialised in making linocuts. She printed this image from four separate linoleum blocks, inking them individually in yellow ochre, light blue, dark blue and black.

With any print that requires multiple blocks the artist has to be very careful that the blocks are well registered (lined up correctly with each other) or the print will be ruined.
