William Giles Boxed Notecard Assortment


Published with: the British Museum

William Giles (1872–1939) is widely considered to be one of the most important and innovative British color printmakers of the early 20th century. He focused 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. His method gave way to a softer blending of color and form, and his woodcuts are often mistaken for paintings.
