Description
Still Life with Fish of 1933 and Skyros Jug of 1937, are concentrated all the characteristics of his highly expressive line which are plain to see chiefly in his works with this subject-matter. Both woodcuts, with the freedom afforded by carving on transverse wood, highlight this typical style of the engraver in rendering dramatically the contrasts between total black and white. The lineations are marked, frequently careful, and very rarely detailed, while leaving most surfaces of the objects completely white.
