A EUROPEAN COLOUR WOODBLOCK PRINT.

A large print on handmade paper, no watermark, signed indistinctly F*** Koch. The artist has also included his seal and the limited edition information, 18/350. Going on the style I would guess that the print is from the first half of the 20th century and produced in Austria or Germany.

Approximately 19.1/4 inches (48.8 cm) by 15.1/2 inches (39.4 cm). The paper is toned slightly as a result of framing...
