Book Auction - MABEL DWIGHT - lithograph

American, (1875-1955)

Lithograph, 1932, Robinson/Pirog 63 (i/II); edition 40. 9 x 10 3/8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a fine, rich impression printed on RIVES watermarked paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This is an undescribed first state impression before the image was reduced along the left side by about 1 3/16 inches. There's a preliminary drawing showing this state illustrated on page 105 of the catalogue which was apparently titled. "Fashionable Auction." This title appears in pencil along the lower left edge of the margin written by someone unknown and it's also listed in the entry as an alternate title for the print. (We have the second state impression on this site if you search under Mabel Dwight.) The scene depicted here is is the book auction of the collected works of the Marquess of Lothian held at the Anderson Galleries in New York, 1932. Dwight was there making sketches and the result was this fine print.       $1,600
