"Afternoon Shadows" by Ronau W. Woiceske, Amer., (1887-1953)
Drypoint, ca. 1940, ed. 50, 9-7/8 x 11-7/8, signed and titled in pencil, on ivory wove paper. Ronau W. Woiceske was a master of winter scenes rendered in the challenging medium of drypoint. His ability to evoke the brilliant light and silvery shadows reflecting off of snow, and the delicacy of snow laden evergreen foliage or the tracery of bare branches is remarkable. "Afternoon Shadows" is a fine example of his work.
