Description
William Giles (1872–1939) is widely considered to be one of the most important and innovative British colour printmakers of the early twentieth century. Born in Reading, England, he studied at London’s Royal College of Art and later in Paris, focusing on the Japanese woodcut relief method, a technique new to the Western world at the time. With his partner, Ada Shrimpton, he experimented with applying the relief method to metal plates. In some of his best-known works, the artist combined use of the woodcut and metal relief printing. Unlike most colour woodcut artists of the time, Giles did not use a key block in his works. Eliminating this once essential element gave way to a softer blending of colour and form, and his woodcuts are often mistaken for paintings.

Contains 5 each of the following images:
Midsummer Night, 1919
The Sources of the Clitumnus, 1910–1914
When Winter Wanes, 1924
Sic Transit Gloria Mundi, 1900–1939
