Bertha Boynton Lum (1869 – 1954) was an American artist and printmaker. In the early 20th century she travelled to Japan to learn the art of wood block printing. She would return often to the land of the rising sun and often used Japanese folklore as the subject of her prints. She also lived in China in the 1920’s and helped to introduce wood block techniques in the west.
