Description: We offer a signed lithograph by Don Freeman. “Four to Go” is 11 5/8” x 14” on off white paper, approximately 14 ½” x 18 ½”. Titled and signed under the image in pencil “Four to Go, Don Freeman” with an additional printed signature at the lower left. A chaotic scene that captures the hustle and bustle of Broadway with stagehands lugging props out the side door of a theater, a stray dog underfoot as scalper smoking a cigar surveys the situation. Item #PR00217.
Don Freeman (1909-1978) moved to New York City in 1928 and studied at the Art Students' League with John Sloane and Harry Wickey. He was constantly drawing the things he saw around him, and his depictions of the 1930s-1950s Broadway scene in particular are held in high regard. He is perhaps best remembered today for the children's books he wrote and illustrated, including Corduroy.
Condition: The print is laid down to illustration board, there are remnants of adhesive tape on recto (likely from prior framing).Otherwise a bold print of a great subject with faults not visible when matted.
