"Heart of Wilmington" by J. Kirk Merrick
Linocut, 1928, ed. unknown, 6 x 9, signed, dated and noted "imp." in pencil, on thick fibrous cream wove japan paper, a few handling creases, mostly to lower margin, tiny trace of glue to upper corners, stray speck of ink left center margin. A striking and dramatic urban image of Wilmington from the late 20's by this Philadelphia and Provincetown trained artist.
