"Arbol en primavera" (Tree in Spring) is a single-leaf woodcut or xilograph by Uruguayan artist Gloria Carrerou. It is numbered 378/3500 and it was done with the original wood blocks and controlled by the author. Edition of 3500 by "Club del Grabado de Montevideo". This copy is NOT signed. Only the first ones were usually signed by the author.

Size: Aprox. 11.4 " by 15.8"

Date: December 1972

In very good condition. There is a small tear on the left edge that does not affect the image.

Woodcut—occasionally known as xylography—is a relief printing artistic technique in printmaking in which an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level with the surface while the non-printing parts are removed, typically with gouges. The areas to show 'white' are cut away with a knife or chisel, leaving the characters or image to show in 'black' at the original surface level. The block is cut along the grain of the wood (unlike wood engraving where the block is cut in the end-grain). The surface is covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered roller (brayer), leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas.
