Block and Print – Image Size 9 x 8.75 inches

Mrs. Watson (born 1889) and her husband Ernest both worked in this difficult medium, which requires the carving of several blocks for superimposing of different colors. Her work, found in many museums, including the Los Angeles County Museum, concerns itself with nature in its varied forms–birds, flowers, snow and water. Watson was also a painter; her murals can be found in many churches. She died in 1948.
