'Chief' signed / numbered lithograph #39/100, Baskin, Leonard (1922-2000)
8 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.

Bound in Quarter black leather with black cloth boards, four raised spine bands as well as gilt spine lettering, Octavo size: (8-3/4" tall x 6-1/2"). Marbled endpapers. Presumably been rebound by "Carlon & Hollenbeck, Printers & Binders, Indianapolis" as the small (5/8" x 1-1/4") label on the rear inside board explains.

Inner hinges are tight, but four binding threads can be seen (not a cracked hinge, looks like it was intended to be this way). Interior contents are tight, except for pages 210 - 222, which are slightly loose and protrude thru the uniform fore edge by 1/16". The illustrations do not, nor did they have tissue paper. Internally, no foxing of pages present. Outer edges of first few pages (including title page) and last 50 or so pages have moisture discoloration around the top, fore, and bottom edges (see pictures). Individual pages are flexible, but as a group of pages, feel somewhat rigid-like (which adds to the "tightness" feeling of the binding). Otherwise, a very clean, solid, and tight copy.

Notes: A 19 page comprehensive article on Joseph Mallord William Turner and his work. Turner (23 April 1775 - 19 December 1851) was an English Romantic landscape painter, water-colorist, and printmaker. Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivaling history painting. Although renowned for his oil paintings, Turner is also one of the greatest masters of British watercolor landscape painting. 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.
