Sale 2456 Lot 21
DOX THRASH (1893 - 1965)
Carborundum mezzotint and etching on cream wove paper, circa 1944-46. 305x229 mm; 12x9 inches, wide (full ?) margins. Signed in pencil, lower right.
There is visible in the house a faint printing from Thrash's 1941 aquatint Shipfitters - see Ittmann fig. 78. Thrash apparently cut down and re-used the copper plate without completely burnishing out the previous etching.
We have found only one other record of this extremely scarce print - another impression was sold at Swann Auction Galleries on April 7, 2016. Ittmann was unable to locate an impression; he reproduces the print's illustration from Cedric Dover's American Negro Art. Ittmann 119: Dover pl .44.
Estimate $4,000 - 6,000
