Lithograph, 1921, Mason 116, edition 56. 10 1/8 x 8 in. Signed and titled "Family Group" by the artist. Signed by the printer, Bolton Brown. This is a very fine impression printed on thin china paper. The margins are fairly modest but this is possibly the untrimmed sheet as printed. The condition is very good other than for two small old hinges at the top corners with traces of the old adhesive showing through and a soft wrinkle along the bottom edge of the sheet, well away from the image. This second version of this subject, done in reverse of the first, is more fully developed and beautifully designed.
