A lovely 1884 marine scene, by the American Luminist landscape painter, Edmund Darch Lewis. Sight size is 14 1/4 x 27 1/4 inches and is signed and dated on the lower right, watercolor with gouache, framed. A recognizable talent at an early age, Lewis studied under the German born, Hudson River School artist, Paul Weber. The Philadelphia Public Ledger described Lewis as "a tremendous talent, great freedom from tradition." His art was in high demand from the beginning and he developed a national following.

Print

Man With Clasped Hands
1922-2000, American

This woodcut by Leonard Baskin measures 2 x 3 inches and was published in 1949. This image is not shown in the Fern and O'Sullivan catalogue but we think it is listed as #35. After serving in the Navy during WWII, Baskin began his career as a printmaker in the late 1940s, beginning with simple linocuts, but quickly progressing to dramatic wood engravings, then later etchings and lithographs.
