I sold my first print in 1976. I had been working at the Wiggin Print Room of the Boston Public Library and then moved around the corner to Childs Gallery. I worked there until 1983 when I decided to start my own print business. I also spent many hours going through the print boxes at the Museum of Fine Arts and it was a great opportunity to study just what makes one impression better than another. Boston is a great print resource center and there’s no shortage of museums and private collectors.

 

I’ve always pursued early 20th century British etchers, Whistler, arts and crafts color woodcuts both European and American, WPA prints, French color prints from the 1890s and modern Dutch and Belgian prints. I’ve also sold many Provincetown white-line color woodcuts over the years. I’m a private dealer and business is by appointment.

This selection of thirty works presents a variety of the kinds of prints I offer. I’ve selected many recent acquisitions in both color and black and white. Quality and condition are paramount and each work meets my high standards. I especially like Theo van Hoytema’s rare set called “Christmas and New Year” which epitomizes the Dutch Art Nouveau style of the 1890s. Rockwell Kent’s “Bowsprit” illustrates a major drawing for the wood engraving and I offer this with the print. “Windblown Trees” by Margaret Patterson is a superb example of an American arts and crafts woodcut. Finally, the Martin Lewis “Break in the Thunderstorm” is a stellar example of his printmaking shown here in a superb impression in mint condition. Finally, we appreciate your interest in our inventory and we invite any questions you may have.
