New John Buck woodcuts
on

We are very pleased to announce the publication of two new John Buck woodcuts, “Moscow on the Seine” and “Cannonball Creek”.

"Moscow on the Seine"
“In “Moscow on the Seine” an unknown person in a bear skin strolls across a background of Russian political and historic figures and architectural sites. Among the images, a bare-chested Putin rides a horse that tramples a man while a woman offers Putin a crown. Buck was inspired by an illustration of the Russian holiday, Maslenitsa, a celebration that dates to the 18th century.
“Moscow on the Seine” is a fourteen color woodcut printed from four woodblocks and one pochoir stencil on white Thai Mulberry paper in an edition of 15, plus proofs. The print measures to 28¾ x 46 inches.
"Cannonball Creek"
The American Bison, or buffalo as it is commonly known, symbolizes wild nature and western culture. Buck’s “Cannonball Creek” depicts the toll taken on native peoples, the land and wildlife they depended upon. From railroads to pipelines, we see in this print a tragedy on a staggering scale motivated by unrestrained resource exploitation for commercial purposes and misguided U.S. Indian policy.
“Cannonball Creek” is a six color woodcut printed from three woodblocks on white Thai Mulberry paper in an edition of 15, plus proofs. The print measures to 25½ x 40¼ inches.
