The Builders - JAMES ALLEN
Etching, 1932, Ryan 62, edition 100. 9 3/54 x 11 3/4 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is fine other than for a faint trace of an old tape adhesive along the top edge, verso, not evident from the front. This stellar print is illustrated in American Prize Prints of the Twentieth Century by Albert Reese (1949). It was on the cover of The Herald Tribune Magazine (9/3/33) and also on the cover of Sunday Review, Brooklyn Eagle (3/25/34). Allen shared a studio with Howard Cook in Paris and upon his return to New York, he studied with Joseph Pennell and William Auerbach-Levy.
