This example, above, of the 6 x 8in (16 x 20cm) signed and dated 1934 woodcut appeared at Dawsons (23% buyer’s premium) in Maidenhead, Berkshire, on March 25. It came from a private London vendor having been in the family for some years and was in good condition apart from some yellowing to the paper.

Estimated at £500-800, it drew good interest and after decent bidding on the day was knocked down at £3300 to a private collector.
