Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/1: 62a-i Nine woodblock prints on machine-made rice paper – 7 were not mounted, 2 were originally matted – of a small town on the edge of a bay, with hills rising across the water. Silhouettes of people and dogs struggle to move through the windy street, while telephone poles and trees bend in the wind. Every piece uses a similar color scheme: dark grey for most of the colored parts, black roofs, objects, and bodies, light grey for the horizon, and red for a swing set and...

Lubell 6/2: 63

Woodblock print that is a portrait of Rosalind Foner. Roslyn is a facial profile, with most of the piece in black and white lines and spaces to denote the subject.

Signed W. Milius ’53.

Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/2: 64a-b These two woodblock prints are portraits of Rosalind Foner. A full-body profile of a barefoot woman standing and holding her head. The differences between the two are fairly interesting; the first print (64a) is on a light machine-made rice paper and the second (64b) on a thicker paper with a blue background, and the first’s ink is deeper but less glossy. This makes the second one look both different from and equivalent. 64a is signed WM Lubell ’53. 64b is titled...

Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/3: 66a-c Three woodblock prints of four children looking at a small lizard held in one boy’s hands. For prints 66a and 66c, in contrast to the yellow background and black lines, the lizard is entirely red in color, with black only used for its eyes and tail. Small lines are used to present a distinct visual impression of all of the subjects, and much of the yellow background spills over into the children (which creates uniformity among them that contrasts to the lizard...

Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/4: 68a-b Two woodblock prints, of a man in a fishing village. Two houses appear in the middle ground, with a boat visible in the back. The houses appear to be rising out of the water with supports. In the bottom-right corner, a fish being held by the man can be seen. The two prints only differ in print quality, and even then only slightly. The thinner, taller print is a somewhat shallower reproduction, but with a few more details (that may have been from the printing...

Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/4: 74 Two color woodblock print of the workers in a factory on a pier, weighing the day’s catch, as a silhouette of another man brings in more fish in the back.

Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/5: 75a-e Five woodblock prints of a four color image of a boy holding a sumac leaf. Differences between the copies are primarily in both quality and use of color. 75a, for example, has the deepest range of color and ink, with small details like the leaf’s partial decomposition filled with distinct shades of red. Two others are also 4 color, but with much less depth (75b is close to the 75a in color depth). All of the fully colored pieces (75a-c) use the same colors: green...

Scope and Contents: Lubell 6/7: 79a-d Two color wood cut print of tangled vines with small spines. Undulations of the individual branches give it a satisfying quality, and, in the case of print 79a, this is aided by the mixture of red and black for its colors. Prints 79b-d are a single, brown color. Print 79b is identified as a proof. A note on the original folder used the title Blackberry Bramble. See woodblock titled [Blackberry?]...
