Zinc Plant - HARRY GOTTLIEB
Lithograph, 1937, edition probably about 25. 13 1/4 x 17 3/4 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine, dark impression printed on cream-colored wove paper. The margins are full. The condition is very good apart from slight darkening along the extreme edges of the sheet and a repaired tear in the upper margin outside of the image. An impression of this print is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and they list it as a WPA print with the date of 1937. Our impression does not have the WPA stamp. Gottlieb produced an almost identical version of this industrial subject as a screenprint. This version is illustrated and discussed in David Acton's book, A Spectrum of Innovation (1990), pages 142-143.
