Product Description
Mabel Royds Boxed Notecards
Mabel A. Royds (British, 1874–1941), printmaker and teacher, was known for the poignant figures and lush botanicals gracing her richly hued woodblock prints. Royds studied art at the Slade School in London and then Japanese printmaking in Edinburgh with Frank Morley Fletcher. She was an early supporter of Britain’s Society of Graver-Printers in Colour, exhibited with the Society of Women Artists for forty-one years, and taught at the Edinburgh College of Art.

Royds married Scottish etcher and fellow teacher Ernest S. Lumsden in 1913, after which they departed for a tour through Europe, India, and the Middle East. She returned with an impressive collection of drawings that would inform a significant body of woodcuts featuring figural subjects. Her botanical prints date from the mid to late 1930s.

In her lifetime, Royds produced sixty-one color woodblock prints. The four botanicals featured in this boxed notecard assortment are from the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and illustrate her mastery of pigment and line—at once robust and delicate.

Honeysuckle, 1933–1938
