COMMENTARY:
This multiple block woodcut of tree branches was made on cherry wood overprinted onto the background of jig sawed wood plates cut from plywood borrowing a technique introduced by Edvard Munch where he inked the separate pieces and re-assembled for printing in one pass, thereby solving the problem of colour registration.
