Excellent condition. Good margins. Fine impression on white wove paper. One of Jay McVicker's earliest aquatint prints. McVicker, a quiet and somewhat reclusive Oklahoma artist, was a student and later colleague of Doel Reed's at Oklahoma State University (beginning circa 1939). Although his work was widely exhibited, and is represented in many institutional collections, he generally garnered little attention until the final years of his life. Following his death there has been a great deal of interest in this artist. McVicker's first prints were realistic in nature, however by circa 1952 the artist had switched to a more abstract and more colorful form of aquatint that essentially dismissed realism from his creative expression.
