Woodblock artists in Scotland

Very interesting display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, showing Japanese masters of the 19th century (mainly Hiroshige) alongside artists working in Scotland in the first half of the 20th. I particularly liked Ian Cheyne’s landscapes, including these:

The Fishermen’s Church

The display included the woodblocks used by Cheyne for this print, showing how he built up the colours in layers.

Another one, rather reminiscent of Paul Nash:



This very fine landscape was not in the exhibition, but worth including here anyway:

Hell’s Glen

Also Mabel Royds:
