End of the Day, Bride, Isle of Man
1916-2004, British

Watercolor, sight size 5 x 7 inches, 1977, signed "Lauder" l.r., identified on labels from Ruskin Gallery, Stratford-on-Avon, England, affixed to their backings. Lauder painted in the minimalist style of watercolor stating that "the scale of the work is appropriate to the medium of water color, for within this compass extreme subtleties can be made. What was anticipated in a painting was the "unseen", the "unexpected"."

Print

Morning
1889-1953, Italian/American

This is a gorgeous original mezzotint, image size 6 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches, published in a small edition of 30 in 1935, reproduced in "Fine Prints of the Year 1935", pencil signed and numbered. Alessandro Mastro-Valerio was born and raised in Italy and studied at the Salvatore Rosa Art Institute in Naples before moving to the United States. He became known for his graceful mezzotints of female nudes; this image is one of his earliest mezzotints, yet his distinctive style of richly sculptural figures and a deep, atmospheric sense of light and shadow is already well established.
