|Description: We offer a pencil signed lithograph by Stow Wengenroth. The image is 8 ⅛” x 12 ⅝” on white wove paper with a Rives watermark (11 ¾” x 16”). Inlet Light is from an edition of 181; published in 1937 for members of the Albany Print Club (Catalog Reference: Stuckley 75.) With masterful technique Wengenroth captures this quintessential, and perhaps imagined, Maine coastline in deep inky blacks. Item #PR00273.
Stow Wengenroth (1906–1978) was born in New York City, but his lifelong artistic project documented the essence of rural New England from its wildlife, its lighthouses, its craggy rocks and salty harbors. He was considered one of the finest lithographers of his time and won more than 30 print prizes and later published Making a Lithograph. Andrew Wyeth said Wengenroth was “America’s greatest artist working in black and white.”
Condition: Ample blank margins have the remnants of tiny (1/4") mounting corners at the top two corners and tiny nicks at the lower corners where the mounts were removed. Image area is in fine condition.
