Ivan Le Lorraine Albright (American, 1897-1983)
Heavy the Oar to Him Who is Tired, Heavy the Coat, Heavy the Sea, 1939, edition of 10 (Grayson, 6). Signed "Ivan Le Lorraine Albright" in pencil l.r., titled and inscribed ".../Edition Limited to 10 prints" in pencil l.l., signed within the matrix, with an invoice from Frederick Baker, Inc., Chicago, affixed to the frame backing. Lithograph on paper, image size 17 x 10 1/2 in. (43.2 x 26.7 cm), framed.
Condition: Not examined out of frame.
Provenance: The estate of The Reverend Canon Carlson Gerdau, New York, sold to benefit St. Mark's School, Southborough, Massachusetts.
Out of the frame the facing and backing mats are glued together so there is no way to view the full sheet without destroying the mat. The middle of the sheet is clearly not affixed to the backing, but we can not know about the edges. The margins are at least 1/2 inch on each side. The paper looks very clean and fresh.
The frame measures 26 1/4 x 19 3/4 x 1 1/4 in.
