CARL E. PICKHARDT, JR. (1908-2004)

The Subway.
Lithograph. 255x205 mm; 10x8 1/8inches, full margins. Edition of approximately 30. Signed and titled in pencil, lower margin.

A very good impression. Circa 1939.

After graduating from Harvard Univsersity in 1931, Pickhardt continued to study art and was awarded the university's prestegious Bacon Travel Fellowship in 1935 to extend his studies to Europe. The same year, he exhibited drawings at Jacques Seligmann Galleries in New York. After a brief move to New York, Pickhardt returned to Boston in 1940. He married the daughter of Fogg Museum director Edward W. Forbes in 1953. His later works were spontaneous abstractions and explore the randomness of movement.
