Santa Barbara.

Etching, 1927. 201x150 mm; 7 7/8x5 7/8 inches, wide margins. Signed with the artist's cypher and inscribed "imp" in pencil, lower right. A very good impression of this very scarce etching, with strong contrasts and with the artist's tack holes for drying at the extreme sheet edges.

The figure in the foreground is a portrait of Edward Borein, the Western printmaker.

We have found only one other impression at auction in the past 30 years. Cortissoz/Clayton 270.
