Associated American Artists, 1938. unbound. View. Black and white lithograph. Image measures 12.75" x 8.75" very good(+).
Richly printed and striking view of a horse being brought out to show (catalogue number C-32) from an edition of 250. Stone is dated and signed "JSG". Signature and edition number (14) in pencil. This print is related to a earlier red chalk drawing and oil painting (1937), which was the first completed painting during Curry's artist in residence at the University of Wisconsin. John Steuart Curry (1897-1946) was an American Regionalist painter and print maker, known for his scenes of rural America. This print was part of a series printed by George L. Miller and distributed by the Associated American Artists. From 1934-1949, the AAA sought to disseminate their work to the public in an affordable manner: they generally produced each print in editions of 250 and sold them for $5 a piece, first through department stores and later by themselves. The group focused on representational and regional artists including Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton. Abrasion to top right and chip to top left corner.
