"The Art Class" by Guy Pene du Bois, Amer., (1884-1958)
Silkscreen in color, ca. 1940-44, edition unknown but limited by subscription, Published by Living American Art, Inc. N. Y. C., 10-1/8 x 14-3/8, signed in the screen as usual, on thick smooth cream wove paper, a small scuff image center on edge of drawing board, faint tape residue to top margin corners well away from image. The artist's only silkscreen print, and possibly his only print period. A charming art class image by this important artist and critic of the American Scene, who is best remembered for his images of people at ease in pursuit of the finer things in life.
