Student and Master

Limbach was the director of the Cleveland Print Makers in 1934 and it is most likely he printed the edition for "Student and Master" himself.

Le Music-Hall

This 1926 lithograph by Jules Pascin measures 10 x 12 3/4 inches, pencil signed in an edition of 35, cat: Hemin 7. Part of the edition was destroyed in the 1945 bombing of Royan. Pascin became a symbol of the Montparnasse artistic community creating mainly watercolors and prints. Drawing upon his surroundings, his subjects included nudes and portraiture of many of his friends. Influenced by Fauvism and Cezanne he exhibited 12 of his works at the 1913 Armory Show.

Cape End Dune

Lithograph, image size 8 x 13 inches, 1940, edition of 25, pencil signed, dated, titled and numbered. John Gregory was a Provincetown artist, specializing in images of the Cape Cod landscape.

Color Abstract

This is a very fine original color lithograph, pencil signed, dated, and inscribed 'epreuve d'artiste' (artist's proof). The image size is 12 x 21 1/4 inches, 1979, with a stamp from the "Ministerio de Cultura Y Educacion" of Spain on the back of the sheet. This is a very cool, abstract composition with vibrant colors by the French cubist artist.

The Evangelist

Framed lithograph from 1941. Number 27 in an edition of 100. Pencil titled, editioned, signed and dated by the artist. Image measures 13 9/16 x 9 7/8 inches in 21 1/4 x 26 1/2 inch frame. The subject is deMartelly's New Hampshire neighbor, Lizzie Osgood. The Osgood sisters had a reputation for their devotion to the Bible, which deMartelly makes light of in this picture. The banner behind Osgood's head and the black cat in the upper right emphasize Martelly's suspicion of organized religion. Cat: Zink 19. One of his independent regionalist lithographs.
