Wheat Shocks - JOHN ROGERS COX
JOHN ROGERS COX
Lithograph, 1951, AAA 1141, edition 250. 8 7/8 x 11 3/4 in. Signed in pencil. This is a fine impression with wide margins. The condition is very good apart from faint light toning within an earlier mat opening and very slight toning of the back of the sheet. This is the only print by Cox and it was published by Associated American Artists in New York. Cox was born in Indiana and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He was appointed the first Director of the Swope Art Museum at the age of twenty-six. He organized important shows of American painters and was buying American painters' works from the 1930s and 1940s for the Swope before it became the trendy thing to do. Cox was a fine painter but he produced a small body of work. He tended towards a magic regionalist landscape tradition and his work is quite compelling.
