William S. RiceWilliam Seltzer Rice (American, 1873–1963) found endless inspiration in nature, creating a vast number of watercolors, drawings, photographs, and prints. He moved to his adopted home of Northern California in 1900, just before the region’s Arts and Crafts movement ignited. A prolific watercolorist, Rice taught at various San Francisco Bay Area schools, including the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland—a center for the movement. He became devoted to block printing for its suitability to the Arts and Crafts ethos of making artwork available to a wide audience at modest cost. Being a skilled craftsman as well as an artist, Rice designed, carved, and printed the blocks all himself. Today his masterful artwork can be found in public and private collections worldwide.
The cards were a beautiful reflection of the wondrous art of my good friend's grandfather and namesake. I am very glad to see that Pomegranate recognized the talent and contribution to American Western art that is also environmentally conscious and showcases, in many cases, nature that is threatened as we speak. Card stock was sturdy and I liked the color of the ink as well. Send a discount and I will do more shopping!
Thanks for sharing, Albert! It's a rare treat to learn of a customer's personal connection to an artist. We're so glad you are pleased with this assortment.
The art and design of these cards are truly exceptional. From now on I will order my cards from Pomegranate and no other company; there is no room for doubt. Thank you for the exceptional quality of your merchandise and the excellent service. Thank you.
