The Gambrel-Roofed Barn - THOMAS NASON - chiaroscuro wood engraving

American, (1889-1971)

Chiaroscuro wood engraving, 1947, Boston Public Library 393; edition 90. 5 5/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on thin cream Japan paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. For this outstanding and somewhat experimental print, Nason found it difficult to obtain boxwood blocks so he printed a tint with a copper plate. The black was printed from a woodblock and the olive was printed from the copper plate.      SOLD
