Outposts
LEON GILMOUR
American, (1907-1996)
Wood engraving, 1936, edition 50 plus artist's proofs. 7 x 11 3/4 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. This is a very good impression printed on a fibrous, Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's a modest printing crease just to the edge of the image at top right.) Gilmour, like Rockwell Kent, was a visionary thinker and his images often suggest an Orwellian, futuristic look. "Outposts", with the reference E=mc2 showing in the image at left, projects an expansive world view where technology and the masses can interact for better or worse. His stylized imagery, like Kent's, is very well-crafted and shows a timeless, ongoing respect for the human figure.
