A fine example of Bertha Lum’s (1869-1954) raised line woodblock print. While living in Peking in 1922 she developed this. First she molded wet paper over a carved wooden block. After it dried she hand painted the embossed paper using the raised lines to delineate the areas of colors-using an old Chinese technique she adapted for her own use. Image is 18 3/4″ h x 24″wide-in frame, 26 1/4″ h x 31 1/2″”w. Unusually large format. Signed, dated 1929. Nicely framed. Archival.
