It's been over 2 years since my last blast: Covid, no shows, etc. and I have been buying all along and squirrelled away a lot of nice items...ENJOY!

 

Email Blast #12

New Purchases: Since I am no longer doing print fairs, all new items will be offered first in this fashion. No one knows what the new items are until the day of upload and all people on our email list get an equal shot at the new prints. Upload will always be at 1pm Eastern Time on the designated day so East and West coasts can have an equal chance.

These blasts are what will happen when I compile a critical mass of new items. I will be sending these out a number of times per year. This is in lieu of yearly catalogs and will give all on my mailing list a more or less equal shot at new items. **IF YOU ARE NOT ON MY EMAIL LIST YOU CAN SIGN UP AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE (**We never share, sell or otherwise expose your email address).

All items are hand signed by the artist unless specifically noted otherwise.

Some of my photos tend to be a bit dark or yellowish due to problems with the white balance on my camera.

All items are properly matted and unframed unless otherwise noted. All defects, minor and major, are noted.

Please See our "Conditions of Sale" page for information on shipping, guarantees, etc.

VOJTECH PREISSIG (Czech. 1873-1944)

"OAKS IN EVENING," ("Duby v Pološeru"), color etching, c. 1900, ed. small, 8 5/8 x 14 1/2.”. Signed in pencil. $2950. Preissig came from Prague and later studied in Paris with Kupka and Mucha. He was a master of the aquatint medium and in 1914 taught at Columbia with Arthur Wesley Dow. His prints are quite rare and most were printed in very small editions. He introduced the linoleum block as a printing medium in the U.S. He created posters for the Wentworth Institute in Boston in the late teens and early 1920's For some reason the plate mark extends far below the printed image (Planned to add a remarque?? Did not have a smaller etching plate??). I have matted it just below the signature, even with other margins.
