Mountain Stream, linocut, 1932. Author: Leonard Beaumont | Beaumont travelled extensively in the Alps, at first making etchings, but finally favouring the linocut as a medium in which to work. This is one of his earlier most successful prints, with bridge and mountain range echoing each other in shape, and likewise the leaves of the trees and the mountains in the mid-ground
This image is taken with the perspective of a leaf. This gives the viewer a different viewpoint. Also, the deer are placed in the top third, using the Rule of Thirds. The leading line of the leaf finishes the image, making it my favorite of these five.
