DOX THRASH (1892 - 1965)
Played Out or Intermission.

Etching and aquatint, 1937-38. 225x149mm; 8 7/8x5 7/8 inches, full margins. From the Nowak restrike edition, printed in the early 1970s. With the artist's estate signature ink stamp, lower right. Numbered V/X in pencil, lower left. A very good impression of this scarce print.

Ittmann describes Played Out as "infusing the banjo player with sensitivity and a feeling of individuality. ... This is not the happy-go-lucky type of yesteryear."

Restrike editions of the nine Thrash plates owned by the Nowaks were printed shortly after April 15, 1971. Another copy of Played Out or Intermission can be found in The Free Library of Philadelphia. Ittmann pl. 54, p. 100.
