Title: WILLIAM GROPPER: RETROSPECTIVE - DELUXE LEATHERBOUND SLIPCASED EDITION WITH A SIGNED LITHOGRAPHED
Description: Los Angeles & Miami, FL, The Ward Ritchie Press & Joe and Emily Lowe Art Gallery of the University of Miami., 1968, First Edition 1/100 Deluxe. (ISBN: LC 68-18437) 1/4 Leather Over Boards, 4to, 128pp, 104 b&w and 8 color illustrations. Designed by Joseph Simon. With a chronology, exhibition history and bibliography. This is the significant monograph on the celebrated American Social Realist artist William Gropper published in conjunction with a 1968 touring retrospective exhibition circulated by the Joe and Emily Lowe Art Gallery of the University of Miami. It presents a comprehensive selection of over forty years of the artist's figurative portraits of the world's disenfranchised poor and working classes contrasted with their powerful employers and oppressors. A handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon ultra-deluxe edition bound in one-quarter blue leather-over-boards for the use of the artist housed in a blue paper-over-boards slipcase limited to one hundred copies with the 8 x 10 " black and white lithograph entitled "Grandfather" NUMBERED (84/100) AND SIGNED "Gropper." in pencil along the bottom margin of the recto along with the publisher's limitation slip laid in, as issued. The gilt-stamped leather spine bears just a bit of sunning and spotting along with a slight nick to both the heel and crown. The slipcase shows some mild soiling and age toning along with an inch-long separation to the joint at the bottom edge. It has been priced accordingly. This is separate and distinct from the editions issued in a yellow paper-over-boards slipcase made for sale by the Joe and Emily Lowe Art Gallery. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.. Very Good/No Jacket - As Issued.
