Here is one of a pair of lovely, framed, woodcut illustrations by Catalan French Modernist artist Aristide Maillol. From the Greek work by Longus, titled Daphnis and Chloe: A Most Sweet and Pleasant Pastoral Romance for Young Ladies, translated by Geo. Thornley, A. Zwemmer, London and published in 1937.

These are 52 woodcuts in this edition by Maillol. This one depicts Chloe placing a wreath on Daphnis’ head. A second framed woodcut from Daphnis and Chloe, also offered by TooArtfulForYou, shows a wreathed Daphnis and unwreathed Chloe placing a wreath on the head of a pet goat. Printed in France by Philippe Gonin on handmade laid paper manufactured by an old process rediscovered, then engraved by Aristide Maillol himself.

Original page measurement is 8 inches X 5.5 inches; matted and framed to 12 ¾ inches X 10 ¾ inches. Some time toning of the paper around the edges of the pale olive green matting. The white-washed frame is finish scuffed and patinaed in an appealing shabby chic way that only adds to the character of the pieces.

Maillol, known best for his sculptural works, illustrated French editions of many of the great works of pagan antiquity. His elegant woodcuts have been described as illustrating playful subjects with elegant simplicity.

Two pairs of Maillol hand engraved woodcuts on hand laid paper from Daphnis and Chloe have recently sold at auction for $293.25 for each pair.
