Flower-design 1924 Eric Arthur Rowton Gill 1882-1940 Intaglio wood engraving Eric Gill was involved in the revival of wood engraving, becoming renowned for his ability with the medium. These prints are taken from the same engraved design and have been printed as relief and intaglio through experimentation with different inking processes. Fine lines are made by shallow incisions in the wood which hold less ink during the inking process. Gift of Mrs and Miss Rutherston 1928.231
