Conversation -  GANSO

Etching, aquatint, roulette and drypoint, undated (circa 1930), Smith I-35; edition 30. 7 3/4 x 5 5/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a fine impression printed with tone. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. Ganso was a fine draughtsman and this subject is typical of his best work. Ganso shared a New York studio with Jules Pascin and they became great friends during the late 1920s. The influence of Pascin is clearly evident in this and others works.

Electric Sign (New York)
Lithograph, 1927, Smith L31, edition unknown. 17 1/8 x 11 1/2 in. Signed on the stone, lower left. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression of this uncommon print. The margins appear to be full and untrimmed and the condition is fine. (The back of the sheet shows a printed architectual rendering on the Maison aux Champs-Élysées floor plan.) This work is also titled New York Rooftops from Studio. (The Smith catalogue records 109 lithographs with a few fine NYC views and other images of upstate NY landscapes. Figure studies tend to predominate his work in this medium.)

Self Portrait with Nude -  GANSO

Self Portrait with Nude
Wood engraving, 1930, Smith R-58; edition 50. 10 1/8 x 8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Here we have a fine impression printed on a cream-colored Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine apart from a slight rubbed spot below the image at left. This print was done at the time Ganso shared his studio-apartment with Jules Pascin. it was located at 900 Sixth Avenue in New York. This is a stellar self portrait with the artist depicting one of his favorite subjects - the female nude.
