The Tournament - GEORGE BELLOWS
Lithograph, 1920, Mason 72, edition 63. 14 7/8 x 18 1/4 in. Signed on the stone, lower left. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. Signed in pencil by the printer, Bolton Brown. This is a fine impression with wide and probably the full margins. The condition is very good apart from slight discoloration in the margins an a few subtle wrinkles to the chine appliqué. This is the better of the two tennis prints Bellows created in 1920, both depicting tennis scenes in Newport, RI. (He and his family spent two summers in Middletown, RI.) There's an oil painting which relates to this stellar lithographic image.
