JAMES LESESNE WELLS (1902 - 1992)
East River.

Lithograph on wove paper, circa 1940. 271x381 mm; 11x15 inches, wide (full ?) margins. Signed, titled and dated "1956" in pencil, lower margin.

Another impression of this scarce print is illustrated in Cedric Dover, American Negro Art, p. 37. The dating indicates this is likely a later printing by the artist.
