About the Item

New York, Associated American Artists, 1950. Drypoint and aquatint on cream wove paper, 5 7/8 x 3 15/16 inches (150 x 100 mm), full margins. Signed and numbered 48/50 in pencil, lower margin. Printed by Stephen Sholinsky, with his blindstamp in the lower right sheet corner. "45" (Teller reference number) inscribed in graphite in the lower left sheet corner, recto, and two accession numbers in graphite in the sheet margins on the verso, all unobstrusive and well outside of the plate mark. In excellent condition with no visible defects. From the portfolio Eight Etchings II, 1936-1959; printed 1980. [Teller 45]. A member of the Union Square group, Isabel Bishop was a contemporary and colleague of other New York-based Associated American Artists luminaries such as Reginald Marsh, Armin Landeck, Raphael Soyer, and Yasuo Kuniyoshi. Bound by their masterful use of light and shadow, the Union Square group typifies the moody, menacing and joyful images that were born from the post industrial landscape of pre-WWII Manhattan and its environs. Unlike some of her contemporaries who were drawn in by landscape, Bishop focused her attention on the beauty and complexity of people partaking in their everyday activities; virtually all of her subject matter in printmaking is figural. Item number: 524

  • "Mes Petites Amies, Les Deux Sœurs" signed by Jacques Villon
    By Jacques Villon
    Located in Milwaukee, WI
    This is an original drypoint and aquatint artwork by Jacques Villon. The artist signed in pencil on the lower right. As well as signed in plate at the top right of the image. This is a wonderful artwork of different intaglio processes being brought together in a beautiful almost seamless harmony. The thin pencil like markings and hair detailing are made using the Drypoint printmaking method. Whilst the color details around the girls are made using the Aquatint etching method. Jacques Villon shows his skills as a printmaker with the way these pieces line up perfectly and with how clean the rest of the plate is around the girls. Catalogue Raisonne E101, pg. 66-67 (Ginestet & Pouillon. It depicts two young girls. 15" x 11 1/2" art 25 1/8" x 20" frame French painter, printmaker and illustrator. The oldest of three brothers who became major 20th-century artists, including Raymond Duchamp-Villon and Marcel Duchamp, he learnt engraving at the age of 16 from his maternal grandfather, Emile-Frédéric Nicolle (1830-94), a ship-broker who was also a much appreciated amateur artist. In January 1894, having completed his studies at the Lycée Corneille in Rouen, he was sent to study at the Faculty of Law of the University of Paris, but within a year he was devoting most of his time to art, already contributing lithographs to Parisian illustrated newspapers such as Assiette au beurre. At this time he chose his pseudonym: Jack (subsequently Jacques) in homage to Alphonse Daudet’s novel Jack (1876) and Villon in appreciation of the 15th-century French poet François Villon...
