“Cactussen” or Cacti, is a typical Dutch, raw , no nonsense woodcut print by Cornelis Rol and his son Hendricus (Cor en Henk) This robust 85 year old artwork measures 28 cm x 20,5 cms and was produced around 1930-1935. The print has some light foxing and yellowing and has been cleaned. On the left margin the print has a little reinforced area (with kozo paper) that is almost invisible outside the margins of this wonderful woodcut.
