Apparently this wood engraving was made after a drawing to decorate Next Court House in Cleveland (United States).
Brangwyn produced over 200 wood engravings and woodcuts between 1904 and 1935, many of them intended as book illustrations and head and tail pieces.
We are grateful to Dr Libby Horner for her assistance (Mowers is no. v 1485 in her forthcoming catalogue raisonné).
