Lino-Cut Prints In Colour by Nora Hamerton
Loose Folio of 6 signed prints, Colour Lino-Cuts.
Dimensions: Each print is 430mm high x 293mm wide.
Consists of outer green card folio with sunbleached edges, tear to front and some staining. Printed label to centre.
Prints themselves are all in very good condition. Printed on ivory card and colours remain vibrant.
A very nice set, which we have never seen before.
The 6 prints depict ordinary Asian figures in traditional dress. Presumably Malaysia. Nora Hamerton was a Malayan artist who illustrated book such as 'Paddylands' and 'Haji's Book of Malayan Nursery Rhymes', both printed in the 1940s.
A scarce set - to date we have found only one other set, held by the National Museum of Singapore.
Undated but we would estimate 1930s to 1940s.
