DSCF6672

Peggy Bacon (1895-1987), Custard (also known as Lunch No. 4 – Custard), lithograph, signed in pencil lower right and titled (Custard for Lunch?). Reference: Flint 77, only state. In pristine condition, printed on a cream wove paper, the full sheet with deckle edges, 11 1/2 x 15 7/8, the sheet 13 3/4 x 18. A fine fresh and rich impression.

Bacon (1895-1987) was influenced by the […]
