Toy Shop Window - MABEL DWIGHT
Medium: lithograph printed in colors
Lithograph printed in colors, 1927, Robinson/Pirog 19, edition 50. 9 1/2 x 12 1/8 in. Signed on the stone, lower center. Signed in pencil and inscribed, "Paris 1927." This is a fine impression with rich colors. The paper is a cream laid and the margins are full. The condition is fine. This charming, beautifully composed print was based on Dwight's time in Paris during 1926-27. Her work there was printed at the studio of Edouard Duchatel which amounted to sixteen lithographs. This work was printed by George Miller in New York suggesting it was drawn on stone after she returned from Paris. Dwight was fortunate to have a master printer in George Miller and she was referred to him by Carl Zigrosser. Dwight admired the work of Daumier and this appreciation is reflected in this print. She created a total of only seven lithographs in color and this is arguably the finest.
