Paul Rohland Woodblock
PAUL ROHLAND, (1884-1953), Serving Fruit, Original Woodblock print, 1923, printed on buff rice paper, measuring 12 x 9 inches, in very good original condition, signed lower right, unframed, and never mounted or hinged. Paul Rohland, for several issues of the Hue and Cry art magazine, published in Woodstock during the early twenties, published a woodblock print in this same style. This is a very American style of the 1920s, and so a highly collectible print. Paul Rohland exhibited at the famous, early, 1913 Armory Show in New York, which exhibit marks the beginning of American artistís participation in The Modern Art Movement. This is an elegant print, in great condition, also signed with an "R" lower left in the print itself.
PAUL ROHLAND was born in Richmond, Virginia and dies in Woodstock, New York. Besides the Armory show, Rohland exhibited at other historic modern shows such as the Salons of American Society of Independent Artists, Whitney Museum, etc. He was a WPA muralist. He has an excellent listing in Who Was Who in American Art.
