Question
I have three woodblock prints by Edward Warwick, circa 1920's which have his signature on the lower right and the letters Imp on the lower left.  Can you tell me what the Imp represents? Thank you.

Answer
Hi Henry, please attach a decent photograph of this work and I'll be happy to take a look at it. Woodcuts were a popular form of printmaking with signatures often done in the plate rather than in pencil/ink on the print itself. I am not sure what the letters "Imp" represent.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
