The Orange Point

Thomas Arthur Robertson
circa 1940

Edition 54. Signed, titled, and annotated 'Ed/54' in pencil.

Image size 10 1/2 x 7 inches (267 x 178 mm); sheet size 13 x 12 1/2 inches (330 x 318 mm).

A superb impression, with fresh colors, on buff wove paper; full margins (1 5/8 to 2 3/8 inches), in excellent condition. Printed in seven colors from as many screens, each prepared by drawing with a litho crayon on a textured surface. The lightest areas of the image are printed, so that they appear whiter than the paper color.

Exhibited at the 15th annual New Orleans Art League membership exhibition, 1941. Reproduced in 'A Spectrum of Innovation: Color in American Printmaking 1890-1960', David Acton, 1990; with extensive commentary by the author.
