A Piece of Wood, a Knife and a Man's Genius. The Woodcut Albums of Frans Masereel
(Joris van Parys) The Low Countries - 1999, № 7, pp. 225-231
Apart from the technical mastery and the constantly surprising flights of imagination, the finest woodcuts of Masereel are particularly impressive for their accessibility to the many and for their poignancy, which has, in no small way, to do with the medium itself. Reproductions of his humanitarian-pacifist woodcuts and drawings were to be found not only in books, newspapers and magazines, but also in pamphlets and calendars, on leaflets and posters.
