Laguna Skyline (New Mexico) -  HALL

Laguna Skyline (New Mexico)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1931, edition only about 30 impressions. 9 5/8 x 12 1/2 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on off-white Japanese paper. The margins are wide and appear to be untrimmed. The condition is very good apart from a wrinkle here and there in the margins and there are two old paper hinges attached to the margins. This outstanding American woodcut shows the Laguna Pueblo which is situated in west-central New Mexico. (The artist moved to Santa Fe in 1944 where she lived until her death in 1957.) This dynamic and rare print captures the spirit of the setting as well as the unique beauty of the great American southwest. Hall's work is discussed in Paths to the Press, Printmaking and American Women Artists, 1910-1960; by Elizabeth Seaton, et al. (see pages 148-149). A proper catalog raisonne of Hall's prints is currently in preparation by Joby Patterson. We extend our thanks to her for assisting us in cataloging this print. Please visit:

Marigolds -  HALL

Woodcut printed in colors, 1929, Patterson 41, edition 60. 8 x 6 15/16 in. Initialed in the block with the artist's monogram. Signed, numbered and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression with fresh colors. The paper is a thin Japanese. The condition is very good apart from a small tear and associated wrinkle in the lower right corner margin and the print is attached to a support sheet at the two top corners. This was certainly done early on. (There's an extremely faint suggestion of toning within an early mat opening.) According to the catalogue, this edition was probably never completed.

October in Santa Fe -  HALL

October in Santa Fe
Woodcut printed in colors, 1948, Patterson 86, edition probably 100. 9 7/8 x 8 in. Initialed in the block with the artist's monogram. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is fine. This outstanding southwestern image was published by the American Color Print Society in 1948. The artist used seven blocks to complete the image.
