H. Eric Bergman, “White Morning” (1932)
The intricate artistry of wood engravings amazes me and Canada has its fair share of accomplished artists in this medium. Chief among them is H. Eric Bergman, who emigrated from Germany in 1913 and made Winnipeg, Manitoba his home throughout a highly productive career until his passing in 1958. Images from the Canadian wilderness figure prominently in many of his very stylized and moody works.

How can anyone produce such stunning art with woodcuts!?
I wonder the same!
Beautiful work. Do you know the engraver, Agnes Miller Parker? This may interest you: http://derrickjknight.com/2015/12/14/agnes-miller-parker/
Thanks for passing along the mention and images of Parker’s work. Those images are excellent as well.
Really beautiful works of art. Thank you for sharing them.
These are all wonderful Brett, but I really like “Steaming Up”
Yes, that one stands out for its difference from the others.
Amazing stuff, really love the wintery scenes.
I agree. Glad you noticed the winter ones, which I included given this time of year.
Thank you for another introduction to some exquisite work.
