E. Mervyn Taylor: Wood Engravings

Solander Gallery is excited to have secured a selection of highly collectable wood engravings by E. Mervyn Taylor for our last online exhibition for this year.

Mervyn Taylor (1906-1964) was one of the few New Zealand artists to successfully work with the wood engraving medium during the 20th century, reflecting the medium’s revival in England at the time. Initially trained as a jewellery engraver, he made a successful transition to wood engraving, one of the most difficult print mediums to master, and produced work that focused on Māori and New Zealand subject matter.
