Title

Middleton Oak

Description

Anna Heyward Taylor was one of several female artists from South Carolina who became associated with the Charleston Renaissance in the years between World War I and World War II. Unlike her peers, whose graphic work was largely confined to the process of drypoint etching, Taylor’s proficiency was in the medium of woodblock printmaking. The nature of woodblock carving and printing lent a strong, graphic sense of color and composition to Taylor’s work in other media, as seen in this atypically large landscape.The painting was created at the historic gardens of Charleston’s Middleton Plantation.
