About this artwork

Between 1933 and 1938, Royds made a series of flower prints. Artichoke is an example of her bold woodcut technique combined with a vibrant colour scheme - the softness of the feathery purple flower contrasting with the hard lines of the thorny green leaves and stem. Although Royds travelled extensively, she always enjoyed depicting the simple things that she encountered in everyday life.
