Drawbridge -  AVERY

Drypoint, 1936, Lunn 10, edition 60. 6 3/8 x 12 7/8 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a superb, rich impression of this view of the Harlem River Bridge. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's just an extremely faint suggestion of toning within an early mat opening.)

Flight -  AVERY

Woodcut Printed in Colors, 1953, Lunn 51, from the edition of 100 published by Collectors of American Art. (Another 20 impressions were printed in black and 25 printed in blue and black.) 7 x 9 in. Signed and dated in pencil. A fine impression on thin Japanese paper. Probably the full margins. In very good condition apart from traces of old hinges showing at the top corners of the margins. An exemplary woodcut by Avery.

Three Birds -  AVERY

Three Birds
Woodcut printed in blue and black, 1952, Lunn 43ii, edition of 15. 9 1/2 x 25 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are probably full and untrimmed. The condition is generally fine. (There's some stray printers ink in the margins which is not uncommon with Avery's woodcuts.) This captivating, large work is one of his finest prints done in the woodcut medium, particularly in this color combination. (There were also fifteen impressions in black and twenty in yellow and black.) Avery loved depicting whimsical birds as subject and there are paintings that relate to this image. Avery was introduced to the medium by fellow artist, Steve Pace. He printed his own blocks, sometimes with the assistance of his wife and daughter.
