Clare Leighton (English/American, 1898-1989). Wood engraving titled "Farming" depicting a round view of a farmer harvesting grains with a hilly countryside extending into the background. Pencil signed along the lower right; titled along the lower center; numbered 5/50 along the lower left. This print was reproduced on Wedgewood plates for their series "New England Industries" based on Leighton's woodcuts. Leighton was a prolific artist, carving over 900 woodcuts. She was also the first woman to produce a book on wood-engraving titled "Wood-Engraving and Woodcuts" (1932).
Image; height: 9 1/2 x width: 9 1/2 in. Framed; height: 14 1/4 in x width: 14 1/4 in.


No visible tears or major creases. The sheet is toned and framed under an acidic mat. There is a slight undulation to the sheet. There are a few scattered minute spots of foxing along the verso that do not affect the recto. There are two minor losses along each lower corner, not visible when framed. It appears that the top left corner may have been slightly trimmed as the top edge is uneven, though this does not affect the overall view of the artwork and is not visible when framed. There is a pencil inscription along the verso along the lower left corner. There are five pieces of tape affixed along the verso; two along the center top and bottom edges, two along the top corners, and one small piece along the lower right corner that is not affixed to the mat and is only affixed to the sheet. There are a few very light creases throughout the work, likely from handling due to the thin nature of the paper. Framed under glass. Please note that the backing has been cut along three edges to be able to view the verso of the artwork. Light wear to the frame.
