      Drypoint and engraving printed in dark brownish black on white wove Italia paper, 1944-45. 300x250 mm; 12x10 inches, full margins. Third state (of 3). Numbered 12/50 in pencil, lower right. Printed by Emiliano Sorini, New York, with the blind stamp lower left, in 1967. Published by Lee Krasner Pollock, Estate of Jackson Pollock, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, with the Pollock Estate blind stamp lower left. Ex-collection Eugene V. Thaw, New York, co-author of the catalogue raisonné of Jackson Pollock's work. A very good impression of this extremely scarce, early print.

      Only a few lifetime proofs of Pollock's etchings exist today. Most of his intaglio work was printed posthumously from plates preserved in the estate, which are now in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. O'Connor/Thaw 1071.
