      LÖIS MAILOU JONES (1905 - 1988)

      Drypoint on cream wove paper, circa 1940s. 178x214 mm; 7x8 3/8 inches, full margins. Signed and titled in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this scarce print with rich burr and inky wiping.

      This is only the second intaglio print by Jones to appear at auction at Swann Galleries. Intaglio printmaking (etching, drypoint and aquatint) is a medium in which she experimented briefly during her time at Howard University in the early 1940s. Two other etchings of hers, The Quarry and Les Clochards, Paris, are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
