"Torrington, December" (Connecticut) by Dennis Callahan
Color Silkscreen, Ed. A/P11/15, 8" x 10", signed, titled and numbered in pencil, on gray wove Somersett watermarked paper, a 1/8" wide strip of old adhesdive residue along top margin edge, a few small spots of foxing lower right under penciled title, large original margins, image and colors fresh and pristine. No artist reference to Callahan has come up in an internet search, but here's an interesting and sophisticated Pop Art treatment of a local CT subject. Note how the plus signs denoting snow change direction to suggest the wind and changes in light. Downtown Torrington still retains it's mid-century industrial and commercial charm, hosting such cultural institutions as the Nutmeg Ballet, The Warner Theater, and Five Points Art Gallery, as well as many diverse and eclectic shops which give this CT town it's unique and vibrant character.
