The PAN edition was printed by Auguste Clot and published in Berlin by Otto Bierbaum and Julius Meier-Graefe. Signac, along with Georges Seurat and Henri-Edmond Cross, defined the French pointillist movement during the late 19th century.

March
GRANT WOOD
American, (1891-1942)
Lithograph, 1941, Johnson 17, Cole 14, edition 250. 9 x 11 7/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression in fine condition. The margins are somewhat trimmed measuring one inch on all sides.

The great design for this print gives it a strikingly modernist look. "March" expouses Wood's compositional practice of dynamic symmetry. (See Johnson, pg. 129-130)
