The '34 Strike: Calling out the National Guard.
Color screenprint. 205x460 mm; 8x18 1/8 inches, full margins. Proof, likely from an unrealized edition. Titled in pencil, lower left and inscribed "L Gilbert" in colored pencil, lower right. Circa 1948.

A very good impression of this extremely scarce screenprint with strong colors.

We have not found another impression at auction in the past 30 years.

Based on the dockworkers' strike in San Francisco in 1934, one of the subjects of Refregier's 1941-48 mural entitled "History of California" for the Rincon Annex Post Office in San Francisco commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Art.
