Print: Woodcut

This woodcut, Saint Jerome in the Wilderness, is extremely intricately done.  There looks to be hatching strokes and the use of line to create shadowing and different values of light and dark.  The print also “follows” many of the other principals and elements of art.  For example, the rule of odds, there are three animals to create a natural looking scene.  There is an intricate use of organic shape that creates the trees, sky, and ground of the print.  The artist also creates space in this print.
