In the late 19th century, the popularity of Japanese art in Western culture merged with the heightened interest in craftsmanship promoted by the Arts & Crafts reform movement, resulting in the broad acceptance and popularity of the color woodcut in America. This ancient art offered artists from the period the opportunity to express themselves through the creation and design of beautiful, colorful and original art at prices that were affordable for homeowners and collectors.

Color Woodblock Prints from the Collection of the Two Red Roses Foundation, provides a scholarly interpretation of this important art form and focuses on the Foundation’s collection of rare, diverse, and vibrant color woodcut prints. The book takes an exhaustive look into the extraordinary history of print making tracing back to its earliest roots. With detailed descriptions and hundreds of high-definition color prints by luminaries Dow, Baumann, Fletcher, Gardiner, Gearhart, Hopkins, Irvine, Patterson and other notables, the catalog offers fascinating biographies, extended essays, and comprehensive explanations of the painstaking technical process involved in creating multi-colored woodcuts.

This book is the seventh published by the TRRF and completes the portfolio that catalogs its world-class collection of artworks created during the American Arts and Crafts movement.
