Art in the House
This print is part of a series of woodcuts called Art in the House by English artist Robert Bateman in 1876. It seems to depict a woman in a cape standing behind a boy that is weeping. The woodcut is created by carving a wooden block to the desired design, and then rolling ink over the carved block for printing on paper.
