Edward Loxton Knight (1905 – 1993)
Edward Loxton Knight was born in Long Eaton in Nottinghamshire, and studied at the local art school. Although he produced works in many media, he is best known for his woodcut prints of local scenes. The advertisement for Sandeman’s port was produced whilst he was still a student.
A relief print made by printing from the top surface of a plank of wood into which a design has been cut with gouges or knives. The cuts (which show up white in the print) are usually quite bold because of the texture and grain of the plank, whether hard or soft wood. This term is broadly used to cover any print from a wooden block.
