Boy on a Wheel
Screenprint, 1947, edition 45 14 3/8 x 10 1/4 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. A fine impression with full margins. The condition is very good. Robbins was a New Jersey artist who was employed with the New York WPA program. She specialized in artistic screenprints as well as oil paintings. Her 1930s and early 1940s work was primarily realistic urban street scenes and the prints from the late 1940s, as shown here, leaned more to the abstract reminding us of Dorr Bothwell, Edward Landon and others. This print was made from five screens and is so inscribed.
