In the Park, Dark - GEORGE BELLOWS
Lithograph, 1916, Mason 30, edition 81. 16 7/8 x 21 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression printed with strong contrasts and exceptional luminosity. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's a very faint suggestion of an old tape residue along the top of the upper sheet edge, verso.) This large work exists in two versions, the other being Mason 31, In the Park, Light. There are, in fact, state variations in this image and our impression is slightly different that the one illustrated in the Mason catalogue. Differences in the sky, apartment house and trees are apparent. This subject, a June day in Central Park, is the basis for an oil painting which is now in the Detroit Institute of Arts. A related ink wash drawing was exhibited in the Armory show and it's now in the collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY. This is a large and exceptional print by the artist.
