    OK, I had a little accident today. I fell off the loft-ladder and knocked a picture off the wall. I'm not hurt but the picture frame is busted and I've dented the wall! :rolleyes:

    Anyway, it got me thinking about the print in the frame.

    It appears to have come from Earnest Brown & Phillips operating as the Leicester Galleries in Leicester Square.

    There were some sheets of newspaper between the mounting and the backboard dated July 1924 so it must have been framed about this time.

    That month they held an exhibition of Paul Gauguin's work. It's not by him, I know that!

    Anyone shed some light on what you'd call the style or even recognise the initials?

    It's funny you should say that. It came from my grandmother's house and she lived across the valley from Standen House, another Arts & Crafts house and always thought it was Standen until I compared it.

    It's wood block engraving.

    I thought it might be. Is that the same as woodcut?
