Bowsprit -  KENT

Bowsprit
ROCKWELL KENT
American, (1881-1940)
Pencil on tracing paper, probably 1930, See Burne-Jones 56. 5 1/2 x 7 in. (image). Signed upper left, "Rockwell Kent (sketch for woodblock 'Bowsprit')." Our drawing is in very good condition. (The sheet was mounted quite some time ago to a thin, archival rag board, apparently to soften the look of some creasing and wrinkling in the image.) This outstanding, working drawing is not mentioned in the Burne-Jones catalog as the author was probably not aware of it. He does, however, reference and illustrate a preliminary drawing from the Zigrosser Collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, but it is considerably less developed than our work. We are offering this outstanding drawing WITH AN IMPRESSION OF THE PRINT for which this is the definitive study. The woodcut "Bowsprit" was printed in an edition of 120 and it measures the same size as the drawing (which has a pencil borderline on all sides). The margins are full and the condition is excellent. The woodcut is signed in pencil, lower right. (The canceled block is part of the Adler Collection in the Princeton University Library.) Provenance for both works: Baldwin-Wallace College, Ohio (deacessioned, 2010.)
