Original woodcut by Walter Grammaté, printed from the original woodblock for La Gravure sur Bois Moderne de l'Occident by Roger Avermaete, published in 1928 in a unique edition of 1000 copies, all printed by Maurice Darantiére on pure rag "Vincent Montgolfier" wove paper. This comes from copy 839. The original woodcuts in this groundbreaking work were printed within the text, so this print has text above, to the side, and below, and text and a reproduction of a woodcut by Lovis Corinth on the verso.
