The real Virginia Woolf?

Loren Kantor has completed another woodcut of a famous author: this time Virginia Woolf. (For Loren's portrait of Hemingway, click here.)

To my eye, this woodcut makes the troubled lady look more peaceful and beautiful than most photographic images of her. Nice work.





Loren's woodcuts are available for sale via his web site.

I was never a great enthusiast for Mrs Woolf's novels, but Orlando made a wonderful film.

I’ve seen a movie about Virginia Woolf, didn’t actually remember it’s name. Only after that movie I became interested in the creative heritage! Thanks for this interesting article!

I've never thought greatly about woodcuts. But you're right - they're very striking!
