About this artwork

Ian Cheyne was among a group of British artists during the 1920s and 1930s who taught themselves the woodcut technique to great effect. Cheyne mastered the traditional Japanese method of hand painting a colour fade to his blocks. For this print he used four separate wood blocks, some cut on both sides, to create seven separate printing surfaces. Each was painted in multiple colours and printed in precise registration to create the final image. Cluanie is situated at  in the south-east end of Glen Shiel in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. The white building in the picture is the Cluanie Inn.
