"European Street" by Esther Julia Coleman, Amer., (Early 20th Century)
Color Linocut, ca. 1930's, Ed. unknown, issued as a Christmas card, signed in the red interior Greeting block inside, and printed on cream wove japan paper folded over. diagonal soft folds to lower right corner. Intended as a Christmas card, this woodcut's cheery luminous colors brighten whatever place it resides. Perhaps someone may have come across other woodcuts by this artist, I have been unable to unravel the mystery so far of who she was and the extent of her career as an artist, but this little woodcut still delivers while it begs the question.
