Context: Between the 1930s and the 1950s Rist produced only 40 known prints---beautiful examples of the delicacy and fine color gradations possible with woodcut. Unlike other American artists of the period, Rist was not interested in abstraction or in scenes of urban or rural life. He preferred to depict realistic still lifes, exquisitely printed from numerous blocks. Ten blocks were used for Three Red Roses.
