The Street - GEORGE BELLOWS
Lithograph, 1917, Mason 47, edition 54. 19 x 15 1/4 in. Signed, numbered and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on a fibrous, medium weight wove paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine other than occasional specks of dirt or ink showing in the margins only. This large, beautifully composed New York print depicts the lower East Side, under the El, during the summer. Yet again, Bellows demonstrates his extraordinary skills as a draughtsman. A crayon and ink drawing for this print is in The Wiggin Collection of the Boston Public Library.
