Hand Colored Map of Nantucket by Sol Levenson, 1981


Vintage hand colored map of Nantucket by Sol Levenson (1910-2006), an extremely rare decorative map of Nantucket Island, printed on non-woven fabric (quilting interface fabric) and hand colored and detailed, hand signed in the lower right and copyrighted 1981 in print in the lower left. The map features local place names, and an array of iconic Nantucket images including a Figurehead, Sperm Whale and Scrimshawed Whale's Tooth, Barque under full sail, Whale Boat and Harpooner. The piece is in excellent condition and retains strong color, mounted under glass in a metal frame. The piece is reminiscent of the serigraph map of Nantucket done by Roy Clifford Smith earlier in the century. This is the only one of these maps we have seen in over 35 years in the antiques business on Nantucket. Solomon Levenson was a child prodigy artist who came of age as a WPA mural artist during the Great Depression. He lived much of his life on the North Shore, and in later years created a large series of murals in New Hampshire honoring the Shakers and New England culture and history. Measures: 21 1/4 in H x 30 1/4 in W $3200.
