My Spring Show selection offers a diverse range of printmaking masterworks, dating from the early to the late 20th century.
Noteworthy is the pair of John Marin etchings ‘Brooklyn Bridge No. 6 (Swaying)’ and ‘Downtown the El,’ both masterfully printed by the artist from the very scarce, early editions before the steel-facing of the plates. Other iconic New York City images include works by Howard Cook, Otto Kuhler, Lyonel Feininger, Clare Leighton, Martin Lewis, and Louis Lozowick.
Works by African American printmakers include the early and seldom seen WPA lithograph ‘Artist Life #2’ by Hughie Lee-Smith; Margo Humphrey’s vibrantly colored, monumentally scaled woodcut ‘Adam and Eve;’ and Elizabeth Catlett’s tribute to the enduring fortitude of the African American woman, ‘Survivor.’
Other WPA works include Charles Turzak’s compelling Chicago cityscape ‘La Salle and Washington Street;’ Lou Barlow’s innovative double portrait ‘Tenant Farmers;’ and Mary B. Schuster’s intriguing surrealist lithograph ‘God Made the Integers, All the Rest is the Work of Man.’
New acquisitions include two masterworks by renowned wood engraver Paul Landacre, ‘Monterey Hills’, and with only three known signed impressions, the extremely rare ‘Spring, 1944.’
The small group of Japanese prints is enlivened by Hiroshi Yoshida’s ‘Chion-in Temple Gate’ awash in the warm glow of sunset contrasting with ‘Taj Mahal, Night’ his evocative nocture of the storied Indian monument bathed in moonlight.
