Grant Park (Chicago) -  TURZAK

Grant Park (Chicago)
Woodcut, circa 1930, edition 50. 12 1/8 x 9 1/4 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb, dark impression printed on thin cream laid paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. Turzak was one of the preeminent Chicago WPA artists and this is a stellar example of his work in the woodcut medium.

Pink Hibiscus -  TURZAK

Pink Hibiscus
Color woodcut, circa 1930-40, edition 50. 12 x 8 1/4 in. Signed in pencil. A fine, fresh impression on a medium weight japanese paper. Old tape hinges, verso, at top margin corners.

Randolph Street (Chicago) -  TURZAK

Randolph Street (Chicago)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1935-36, edition probably about 25. 12 1/16 x 9 1/4 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full measuring about one-half inch to one inch. The condition is fine other than faint darkening at the top corners, verso, from earlier hinges. This is one of Turzak's best prints and it's also quite rare. From a series of four prints called "Chicago Moods," this stellar color woodcut shows the city's entertainment district at night. "Palooka" was a 1934 comedy film.

Under the Bridge -  TURZAK

Under the Bridge
Woodcut printed in two colors, 1934, edition probably about 25. 8 x 10 1/2 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are wide and the condition in fine. This rare work is a Chicago WPA print but our impression does not have the WPA stamp. There's a comparable impression in the Art Institute of Chicago.
