About this artwork

Between 1933 and 1938 Royds made a series of flower prints. ‘White Lilies’ is an example of her bold woodcut technique combined with a vibrant colour scheme. Although Royds had travelled extensively and lived in both Canada and India, she always enjoyed depicting the simple, yet beautiful, things around her. This included her daughter growing up and flowers in both full-bloom and in their dying days.
