'Chief' signed / numbered lithograph #39/100, Baskin, Leonard (1922-2000)
2 Baskin, Leonard (1922-2000) 'Chief' signed / numbered lithograph #39/100
Northampton, MA Gehenna Press 1978 No Binding Very Good Print Signed by Illustrator(s)
'CHIEF' Original lithograph by Leonard Baskin, SIGNED / NUMBERED PRINT - #39/100 Available is a rare original signed and numbered limited edition lithograph by internationally acclaimed sculptor and printmaker LEONARD BASKIN (American, 1922 - 2000). This engraving entitled 'Chief' dates from 1978, and predates his later series of Native American style subjects. It is signed in pencil by the artist on the front lower right "Baskin" and numbered on the lower left "39/100". The print is from a limited edition of only 100 impressions. It is in very good and bright condition, with a few faint creases along the perimeter of the image. See pictures for overall condition. Print measures 14" x 22-1/2" (sheet), 7-1/4" x 10-3/4" (image). CATALOG REFERENCE: This print is a non-cataloged piece from Baskin. Not listed in Alan Fern and Judith O'Sullivan's "The Complete Prints of Leonard Baskin, A Catalogue Raisonne 1948-1983". A well known draftsman, printmaker and sculptor, Leonard Baskin had the ability to depict in an abstract style man and his relation to the world. Whether working with bronze or wood or two-dimensional mediums, his focus remained on large heroic, but flawed human beings who at times recall photographic images of concentration-camp victims or birds with human bodies that suggest mythological forms. His works are part of the permanent collections at many of the world's leading galleries and museums, including the Library of Congress, Smithsonian Institution, Hirshhorn Sculpture Gardens, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, British Museum and Vatican Museum.

He is commonly known as "the painter of light" and his work is regarded as a Romantic preface to Impressionism. Contains 19 illustrations / engravings including some of the artists' most well-known work. Condition: Complete article removed from within original Harper's Monthly Magazine.

13 Sander, David [Sander Wood Engraving Co.] Liberty Bell engraving print
Porter, In. Roast Pigeon Press 1975 No Binding Very Good Print 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾ 
Original image was selected by the David Sander, of the Sander Wood Engraving Published by the Roast Pigeon Press, Porter Indiana. Copyright 1975. The original image is not sourced, but any copyrights held by individual writings or images have been long expired. The original illustration may have come from Harper's Monthly Magazine, July 1851, from the story "Our National Anniversary" by Benson Lossing. Image in very good condition with flaws noted: crisp and clean, with a bright contrasting black and white image. The paper is high quality, showing no yellowing or foxing. An excerp from that story: "Tradition says that it was first broken by Dr. Franklin, who remarked, 'Gentlemen, we must now all hang together, or we shall surely hang separately.' Thousands of anxious citizens had gathered in the streets of Philadelphia, for it was known that the final vote would be taken on that day. From the hour when Congress convened in the morning, the old bell-man had been in the steeple. He had placed a boy at the door below, to give him notice when the announcement should be made. As hour succeeded hour, the graybeard shook his head, and said, 'They will never do it! they will never do it!' Suddenly a loud shout came up from below, and there stood the little blue-eyed boy clapping his hands, and shouting, 'Ring! Ring!' Grasping the iron tongue of the old bell, backward and forward he hurled it a hundred times, its loud voice proclaiming 'Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.' The excited multitude in the streets responded with loud acclamations, and with cannon peals, bonfires, and illuminations, the patriots held a glorious carnival that night in the quiet city of Penn."

Kuppenheimer engraved prints, Sander, Jacob [Sander Wood Engraving Co.]
15 Sander, Jacob [Sander Wood Engraving Co.] Kuppenheimer engraved prints
Chicago Sander Wood Engraving Co. 1975 No Binding Very Good Print Folio - over 12 - 15 Leyendecker, J. C. 
These three original prints were engraved by Jacob Sander in the mid-1920's, based on the then popular Kuppenheimer ad campaign by J.C. Leyendecker. Sander based the wood engravings on current ads made by Leyendecker. He engraved around forty fashion subjects for newspaper advertising by the Sander Engraving Company of Chicago, Ill. No signature or date is present, and they are not a limited edition set (although the Sander Engraving Co. is gone, and original blocks most likely sold off or destroyed, therefore no others may be produced). These are prints from the original blocks, but most likely "struck" (or printed) in the mid-1970s. As they are not titled prints, so I will title them by description. MEASUREMENTS: "Kuppenheimer w/ seated man on right" - 7-3/4" x 6-1/4" image, 13" x 9" overall size. "Kuppenheimer w/ trophy" - 7-1/4" x 6-1/4" image, 13" x 9" overall size. "Untitled baseball throw" - 6-1/4" x 6" image, 13" x 9" overall size. CONDITION: All images in fair to good condition, with no flaws, creases, etc. I am not a paper expert, so I don't know what type they are printed on; seems to be a higher quality paper, almost vellum like in appearance. Not previously framed, no tape marks or hinges present.
