About

Jacques La Grange, 'The Start of the Race, 1899', color woodcut, edition 500, 1934. Signed and numbered '21/500' in pencil. A fine impression, with fresh colors, on cream wove paper, with margins (1 1/4 to 1 7/16 inches), in excellent condition. A work from La Grange’s celebrated series of woodcuts 'Drama and Color in the America's Cup Races'. La Grange’s depiction of the 1899 America’s Cup Race shows the two contenders, the challenger 'Shamrock' (on the right), and the defender 'Columbia' vying for the lead. This 10th challenge for the Cup took place in the New York City harbor and consisted of a best of five races between the 'Columbia', entered by the New York Yacht Club, and Sir Thomas Lipton's 'Shamrock', representing the Royal Ulster Yacht Club (N​orthern Ireland). 'Columbia' won all three races against 'Shamrock'. ABOUT THE ARTIST Jacques La Grange was born in Clanwilliam (near Cape Town) in South Africa in 1895. He studied at London University and later immigrated to the United States. La Grange established himself as a painter, illustrator, and printmaker specializing in nautical subjects. He and his wife, Helen La Grange, published 'Drama and Color in the America's Cup Races' in 1934 and 'Clipper Ships of America and Great Britain 1833-1869', in 1936. Both were deluxe hardcover limited edition volumes with signed original color woodblock prints. Jacques had solo exhibitions at the Buchanan Gallery in 1929; the Babcock Gallery and the 56th Street Gallery, New York, in 1930; and at the Nicholas Roerich Museum, New York, in 1931.
