Hello,

2nd art piece that came from same portfolio. Appears to be a wood block print of old gent holding the hat. Made on very thin (papyrus type) paper. Measures approx 8 x 10 inches for overall with an art image to be 5 x 7 inches roughly. Signed to the left corner "N. Ho...." but this could be a "sitter" name rather then artist's. Also initialed "AL" right bottom corner under the image plus the same bold letters appear just slightly above being part of the art image.

I was wondering if somebody knows the artist please ......

Thank you.
Cyril.

Bottom left: or. Holzsch. for "originale Holzschnitt" = original woodcut.

The artist is Axl Leskoschek (Austria 1889-1975)
