"Gwen Raverat (1855-1957) was one of the most distinguished printmakers of the century, an artist in whose hands the medium of wood engraving became uniquely transparent to personal vision. Her world, richly populated with the symbols of her own experience set in one of the most classic traditions of Western art, is universally accessible and capable of inspiring passionate affection in those who are drawn to it, responding to her own intense reaction to the subjects she chose."
