San Francisco Yacht Harbor
An early etching by Gene Kloss, this is a very richly inked scene of boats moored on the quiet harbor waters of San Francisco Bay. The image size is 9 x 10 inches, published in 1935 in a small edition of 75, pencil signed, titled and numbered. Gene Kloss was born in California as Alice Geneva Glasier, changing her name when she married the poet, Phillip Kloss in 1925. On their honeymoon, the Kloss's traveled to and fell in love with Taos, New Mexico. For over a decade they split their time between Taos and Berkely, CA; Gene Kloss becoming a central figure in the artistic communities of both states. This etching is in pristine condition and features a richly inked impression with superb plate tone on a heavy weight wove type paper.
