KENNETH WHITLEY (1918-1979) FIRE WRECKS A FOREST. Circa 1938.
30x19 3/4 inches, 76 1/4x50 1/4 cm.
Condition A-: minor staining and abrasions in margins and image; time-staining in margins. Silkscreen on card.
The catalogue for the 1938 exhibition Art for the Public by Chicago Artists, held at the Art Institute of Chicago, lists Whitley's submission as "Fire Prevention," printed on behalf of the U.S. Department of the Interior. As it is not an illustrated catalogue, it is impossible to know for certain whether this was the image from that exhibition.
