Monica Poole (1921-2003) was a superb British wood engraver who trained under Noel Rooke and John Farleigh at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. She was enormously talented but not very prolific so her engravings were eagerly snapped up whenever they appeared on the market. This is a chance to see her beautiful work in one place.
