Roses - CHARLES  SHEELER - lithograph

American, (1883-1965)

Lithograph, 1924, Bryce 2, intended edition of 35. 11 x 9 1/8 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression of this very rare lithograph. The partial watermark reads as FRANCE which refers to BFK RIVES, FRANCE. The margins are probably full and untrimmed. The condition is very good apart from faint discoloration showing in the outer margins most likely from an early mat. The intended edition was thirty-five but at the most maybe only twenty impressions were printed. As it states in the catalogue, "According to John Driscoll, the edition of Roses was begun in the morning, work was halted during lunchtime, and upon return from lunch, it was found that someone in the print shop had cleaned the stone, having mistakenly thought that the edition had been completed." The highest known numbered impression is 11/35 but unnumbered impressions do exist. At least eight impressions are in museum collections. This lovely work was printed by George C. Miller in New York. Provenance: Harcus Krakow Gallery, Boston, and Hirschl & Adler Galleries, New York (with their labels).      PRICE ON REQUEST
