Medium: woodcut printed in colors

Laguna Skyline (New Mexico) - NORMA BASSETT HALL - woodcut printed in colors

American, (1890-1957)

Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1931, edition only about 30 impressions. 9 5/8 x 12 1/2 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on off-white Japanese paper. The margins are wide and appear to be untrimmed. The condition is very good apart from a wrinkle here and there in the margins and there are two old paper hinges attached to the margins. This outstanding American woodcut shows the Laguna Pueblo which is situated in west-central New Mexico. (The artist moved to Santa Fe in 1944 where she lived until her death in 1957.) This dynamic and rare print captures the spirit of the setting as well as the unique beauty of the great American southwest. Hall's work is discussed in Paths to the Press, Printmaking and American Women Artists, 1910-1960; by Elizabeth Seaton, et al. (see pages 148-149). A proper catalog raisonne of Hall's prints is currently in preparation by Joby Patterson. We extend our thanks to her for assisting us in cataloging this print. Please visit:       SOLD
