Published in 1927, this is a small but exquisite woodcut by Raphael Drouart, (1884-1972) a French artist listed in the Benezit, and famous for his Art Deco works.
The scene is located on the French Riviera, near Cannes, and shows a lovely Art Deco lady with a hat, walking along the seafront.
The style is typical of Drouart, dark strokes, close to each other, and tormented skies and wind motions, and the piece, though small, is not only representative of his style and of the Art Deco School of woodcuts, it is also, in my opinion, one of the artist's most accomplished compositions.
A precious piece, that can be enhanced by a large matt, and will bring sophistication to any decor.
