Let the Living Rise -  GILMOUR

Let the Living Rise
Wood engraving, 1937, edition 50 plus artists's proofs. 8 x 11 1/4 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. This is a fine artist's proof impression and is inscribed "A.P." The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This image is related to the bombing of Guernica and the artist's outrage over this event. Gilmour learned the art of wood engraving from Paul Landacre after he had moved to California from the east coast. He was active with the American Artist's Congress and his work is in many American museum collections.

Outposts -  GILMOUR

Outposts
Wood engraving, 1936, edition 50 plus artist's proofs. 7 x 11 3/4 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. This is a very good impression printed on a fibrous, Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's a modest printing crease just to the edge of the image at top right.) Gilmour, like Rockwell Kent, was a visionary thinker and his images often suggest an Orwellian, futuristic look. "Outposts", with the reference E=mc2 showing in the image at left, projects an expansive world view where technology and the masses can interact for better or worse. His stylized imagery, like Kent's, is very well-crafted and shows a timeless, ongoing respect for the human figure.
