January - GRANT WOOD - lithograph

American, (1891-1942)

Lithograph, 1938, Johnson 3, Cole 3; edition 250. 9 x 11 7/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is an excellent impression with full margins. The condition is fine apart from the faint remains of the original AAA hinges in the top two corners of the sheet. The paper bears a GCM watermark. This memorable winter image was done in Iowa and there's at least one related drawing and oil painting. (The painting is located in the Cleveland Museum of Art.) "January" is one of six Grant Wood prints reproduced in Thomas Craven's 1939 book, A Treasury of American Prints. This was a very popular print when it was published in the spring of 1938. In the fall 1938 AAA catalogue, "January" was already sold out. (See Johnson, pg. 61).      SOLD
