SYLVIA WALD
Tag! You're It! (Children Playing).

Color screenprint, 1941. 305x455 mm; 12x18 inches, full margins. Signed and dated in ink, lower right. Published by The Silk Screen Group, New York, with the label. A very good impression of this scarce screenprint with strong colors.

Wald (1915-2011) adopted the screenprint technique in the early 1940s and soon became associated with The Silk Screen Group in New York. The group's three shows called Color Prints under Ten Dollars were sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and held from 1940 to 1941.
