Melanie Alice Jooss
1915 Woodblock Engraving- Forest Scene
This large woodblock engraving is signed MJA and dated 1915. We believe based on the monogram and the difficult-to-read signature in the margins that it is the work of the German artist Melanie Alice Jooss who was born in 1883.
Striking image showing an strong German expressionist influence.
