The Broad Curtain - CHILDE HASSAM
Lithotint, 1918, Griffith 29, edition 55. 10 3/4 x 14 3/4 in. Signed and dated on the stone, lower right. Signed in pencil in the lower right, as well. This is a superb impression of this large work printed on Japanese paper. The margins are probably full and the condition is very good. Hassam produced only forty-five lithographs, all of them during the 1917-1918 period. Of these, five were lithotints and they were drawn directly on the stone whereas the lithographs were drawn on transfer paper first. This exceptional print expresses the painterly potential of the lithotint medium and the subject is decidely Hassam at his best.
