Fiesta (Taxco) -  COOK

Fiesta (Taxco)
HOWARD COOK
American, (1901-1980)
Etching, 1933, Duffy 173, edition 50 (30 printed) 10 7/8 x 14 1/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil and with the inscription "trial proof" in the lower left corner of the margin. This is a superb impression with small, slightly irregular margins. The condition is fine. This unusual proof impression is before the upper left corner was filled in and there is blank space around the small horse on the right side. The image is most effective and as appealing as the finished plate. It provides fascinating insight into Cook's working methods.

HOWARD COOK

Wood engraving, 1929, Duffy 107, edition 100 (forty printed). 6 1/8 x 3 1/4 in. Signed in pencil and inscribed, "Greetings from Howard Cook - my self portrait." This is a very fine impression printed on thin japan paper and mounted at the top to a heavier support sheet. Fine condition. This was possibly intended as a holiday card and with the addition of "self portrait," I suspect the title of simply "Dog," does not tell the whole story here.
