Sprinters - JOHN J. A. MURPHY
JOHN J. A. MURPHY
Woodcut, 1931, Cole 155; edition probably 75. 11 1/8 x 13 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is quite good. Murphy's woodcuts are quite distinctive and this is considered by many to be his finest work. Sylvan Cole Gallery held an important retrospective of Murphy's work in 1990. The artist exhibited with the Leicester Gallery, London, while he was alive as well as with Frederick Keppel in New York. This print is illustrated on page 102 of Master Prints of Five Centuries; The Alan and Marianne Schwartz Collection (1991).
