This set of progressive proofs illustrates the process of making a color woodcut using individually carved woodblocks. The final print was one of 79 illustrations for Les petites fleurs de saint François d'Assise (The Little Flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi), which was also issued in deluxe editions that included a full set of progressive proofs for each woodcut.
