RETURN FROM TOIL
Sloan, John. RETURN FROM TOIL. M. 175. Etching. 1915. Edition of 100 of which only 85 were printed, this being one of 45 printed by Ernest Roth. Signed, titled and annotated "100 proofs," and signed "Ernest Roth, imp" at the lower left. 4 1/4x6 inches, 109 x 152 mm., plate, 8 x 11 inches, sheet.
A simplified version of this subject was done as a drawing which was used as the cover of the July 1913 issue of "The Masses." In very good condition except for a small spot of ink in the margin at right, far enough from the image to allow for a proper distance between the plate mark and the mat opening.
