This beautifully illustrated calendar includes a selection of Mabel Royds’ striking floral artworks. Royds was an English artist renowned for her woodcuts, her technique was indebted to Japanese woodcuts, which you will see in this beautiful calendar. Informative text accompanies each work and the date pad features previous and next month’s views.
Between 1933 and 1938 Royds made a series of flower prints. Although she had travelled extensively and lived in both Canada and India, Royds always enjoyed depicting the simple, yet beautiful, things around her. In ‘Magnolia’ the artist has used the stems of the magnolia plant to create a lively image, despite the muted tones, that leads the eye around the composition.
Mabel Royds (1874–1941) was an English artist best known for her woodcuts. In 1913 she married the etcher, Ernest Lumsden, who also taught at Edinburgh College of Art, and together they travelled through Europe, the Middle East and India. Under the tutelage of Frank Morley Fletcher, Royds began creating colour woodcuts. Fletcher taught classes on the traditional Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking process.
