Homer's Wood Engravings


Date: Thu Aug 08 2002 - 05:20:49 PDT

Winslow Homer did many wood engravings of Civil War scenes. I've been trying
to find out how his drawings were transferred onto the wood blocks for
printing, specifically, who transferred them? I know that many times it was
a specially trained craftsman who carved the blocks but did Homer himself
ever do it? Thanks for any help you can give. Marilyn Katcher
