LANDACRE, Paul

Storm, 1934

American (1893 – 1963)

Storm1934

Wien 156. Wood engraving on laid japanese paper, full margins.  Edition of 60.  Signed, titled and numbered 44/60 in pencil. The petrel bird is drawn in red pencil in lower right margin (which Landacre drew on the best impressions).

8 x 10 1/4 in.; 20.32 x 26.04 cm.

This rare wood engraving is in fine condition apart from a pale sign of an earlier mat.  Hilary Roberts wrote that what makes Landacre’s  work so appealing is the balance between his exacting perfection of line on the one hand and the unrestrained exhilaration in his forms on the other.
