Provenance: The Artist’s Estate

In the history of wood engraving Clare Leighton is acknowledged to be one the greatest exponents of this art. Her Farmers Year, 1933, is one of the most celebrated illustrated books of its period and her New England Industries for Wedgwood, produced in the late 1940s after she had emigrated to America, are a design classic.
