View from Palomar - DOROTHY DEHNER
Engraving, 1959, edition 55. 13 7/8 x 9 3/4 in. Signed, dated, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed with tone. The margins are full and the condition is fine. After her marriage to David Smith ended, Dehner began teaching after getting a degree in 1952 and renewed her acquaintance with Stanley Hayter at Atelier 17. She began to work in sculpture in 1957 and this 1950s period is when she made her most successful abstract prints. Her work is illustrated and discussed in: Paths to the Press, Printmaking and American Women Artists, 1910-1960, by Elizabeth Seaton et al.(2006), pages 118-119, and in David Acton's 2001 publication, The Stamp of Impulse, Abstract Expressionist Prints, pages 124-125. Ex collection: James Heald.
