JACOB LAWRENCE (1917 - 2000)
Eight Passages.

Eight color screenprints chine-collé on St. Armand paper, 1990. Each 660x1016 mm; 26x40 inches (sheets), full margins, loose as issued. Each print signed and numbered 10/22 in pencil, lower margin. Printed by Stone Press Editions, Seattle, with the blind stamp, lower right. Published by the Limited Editions Club, New York. Superb impressions, with bright and vibrant colors.

The prints illustrate the King James version of the Book of Genesis. Bearing captions lithographed from mylars handwritten by the artist, this "exhibition portfolio" format is much larger than the regular edition of Eight Studies for the Book of Genesis. Original black linen-covered portfolio. Nesbett, 90-2.
