PAUL CADMUS (1904-1999)


Two Boys on a Beach #1.
Etching. 124x176 mm; 4 7/8x7 inches, full margins. Signed, titled and numbered 28/35 II in pencil, lower margin. Printed by Richard Waller, with the blind stamp lower left. Published by The Print Cabinet, Connecticut with the blind stamp lower right. From Twelve Etchings. 1938 (printed 1979).

A very good impression.

Cadmus (1904-1999) began to visit Fire Island in the late 1930s. The Pines was home to an accepting queer community and inspired Cadmus' foray from urban subjects to the escapism of the idyllic Pines.
