JARED FRENCH (1905-1988)

Murals by Jared French, Julien Levy Gallery.
10, [2] pages including wrappers. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers, minor foxing; just a bit of rust at the staple. New York, January 1939.

An exhibition catalog for eight of French's WPA murals which were en route for display in Richmond, VA and West Coxsackie, NY. It includes a brief introduction by art dealer Julien Levy and a longer commentary by novelist Glenway Wescott: "He will go on painting his chosen creatures, like these--mythological-looking immature proletariat: handsome, as the native work and play and climate have made them; vain and graceful and dressy as they are in fact."
