"Portrait of Elshemius" by Don Freeman, Amer., (1908-1978)
Lithograph, probably 1930's, ed. unknown, ca. 9 x 7, printed in blue ink, signed in pencil, on thin gray wove chine paper tipped to a cream wove support sheet. A lively portrait study of the eccentric New York painter & philoshopher Elshemius holding court. The book in his lap and small characteristic paintings at his feet provide a nice touch. Not in the raisonne. Rare.
