The Invasion of Art - PEGGY BACON - drypoint

American, (1895-1987)

Drypoint, 1943, Flint 147, edition unknown. 9 3/8 x 13 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. Inscribed, "For Josephine with morbid affection from Peg." This is a superb impression of this large, uncommon print. The margins are full. The condition is fine apart from a paper tape hinge on the verso at the top, and two tiny white tape hinges at the corners also on the back. The paper bears a WHATMAN watermark. This entertaining work with an equally satirical dedication reflects the personality of the artist. There's a drawing of this same location (Kennebunkport, ME) in the Princeton University Art Museum. It's listed as the same year as the print.      $2,200
