Hilary Paynter

 More wood engravings.
Bridge in Calabria   1971
  Again great use of diagonals in the compositions.
The Wall  1995
  Man-made rift between peoples. Here Hilary writes about this piece.

The Discovery of Lascaux  1977
  Inspired by the story of cave paintings found by children whilst searching for their lost dog.

Tree with a Long Memory   2003
 Here she uses the natural wood shape beautifully and echoes the rings of the tree. Cracks in the bark bite into the edges of the print.
