The Best Hat - MAY GEARHART
Medium: drypoint with aquatint printed in colors
Drypoint with aquatint printed in colors, circa 1925-1930, small edition. 6 7/8 x 3 3/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil within the image. Here we have a fine impression printed on thin japan paper. The margins are wide and the condition is fine. May studied printmaking with Arthur Dow at the Ipswich Summer School on the Cape. She was the supervisor of the entire Los Angeles School system from 1903-1939 and in 1919 she moved to Pasadena to live with her sister, Frances, and their house became a meeting place for local printmakers. This is an especially stylish and well designed print.
