Large Primitive Head in Profile - MAX WEBER - linocut printed with unique color inking

American, (1881-1961)

Linocut printed with unique color inking, 1920-21, Rubenstein 33, edition unknown. 7 3/4 x 3 3/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb, uniquely colored impression printed on thin Japanese paper. The margins appear to be full and there's a number "32" in pencil in the lower left corner. The condition is fine. There are three impressions of this image in the National Gallery; two in brown ink and another is a color variation from the Rosenwald Collection. Weber studied with Arthur W. Dow at the Pratt Institute early on and later in Paris with Matisse. He was impressed with the work of Cezanne. Weber was friendly with William Zorach from their Greenwich Village days and could have been influenced by his printmaking technique. This is an exceptional and rare example of Weber's color woodcut style.       SOLD
