I have been a dealer in Fine Prints and Drawings, Rare Books and occasional Objects d'Art for more than forty years. I show and sell work at Print Fairs, Book Fairs, Antique shows and on the Internet at www.edpollackfinearts.com. I am a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association of America (IFPDA), the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), and am also a principal in PrintFairsUSA, LLC, currently promoting online print fairs to take the place of shows canceled because of the covid pandemic.


I presently have an inventory of more than 2500 works on paper, including etchings, lithographs, woodcuts, drawings, and other print media, as well as an occasional photograph or painting.


I hope you will enjoy viewing my booth and that you will find some things which pique your interest. I can be reached by phone at 617-610-7173 and by email at ed@edpollackfinearts.com

For my Booth at the Online Spring IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair I am presenting 30 Prints by 30 American Artists. The artists I have selected are mostly 20th Century and represented among them are women and artists of African-American, Asian-American, Latin-American, and European-American origin, some of whom were LGBTQ.

Some of the works are unique or rare proofs, such as a working proof by Peggy Bacon with hand-written annotations, an early state proof of an etching by Reginald Marsh for which the plate was cut down for the later states, Trial Proofs of the three prints of Paul Cadmus's NUDO, a preparatory drawing, a working proof, and an example of the final version of an etching by Isabel Bishop, an unrecorded etching by Louise Nevelson printed at Atelier 17, Will Barnet’s first published print, signed with his original name, Will Goldberg, and Ben Shahn’s very rare screenprint “Immigrant Family.”

The plate was subsequently cut in two by Marsh, and 8 impressions were taken of the left side (Sasowsky's fourth, final state), with the two girls (apparently none of the right side).
