Email Blast #8 1/2: New Purchases: Since I am no longer doing print fairs, all new items will be offered first in this fashion. No one knows what they 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 witht 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.

Other impressions of this print are in the collections of the Whitney Museum, and the Wichita Art Museum, I find no auction sales of dealer offerings of this image going back over 25 year so I imagine the edition was quite small.

He was a frequent contributor to the Masses and was quite political. He died by jumping off the new George Washington bridge in a protest over unemployment. I saw an image of this once, I think in the New Masses, and it was titled “Proletarian Sport.” Kolski is an often-overlooked artist who created an extraordinary body of work in his short lifetime. I own about 30 of his works and hope to compile a catalog of his work some day. Would be interested in hearing about other works by him in all media.

From an earlier listing of this image by Ed Pollak: "This print has a very strong relationship to Toward the Light,' Cole 35, which Cole and Gettings date to It shows the same model, in the same drapery, though here with her hair down, facing the same light (here the window is not shown, but the light is shown on the model's face and arms). Soyer, quoted by Gettings, claims there was no preparatory drawing for 'towards the light,' that it was done directly on the stone, yet it seems obvious that the two works were done at the same time."
