      JAMES LESESNE WELLS (1902 - 1992)
      Builders.

      Etching on cream laid paper, circa 1938. 267x216 mm; 10 1/2x8 1/2 inches, full margins. Signed, titled and dated "1950" in pencil, lower margin.

      Another impression of this scarce print, dated 1938, was included in the 1986 retrospective, James Lesesne Wells: Sixty Years in Art at the Washington Project for the Arts, Washington DC. The dating indicates this is likely a later printing by the artist.
