Edward Landon (1911-1984), Disputation, serigraph, 1949, signed in ink lower right and titled in pencil lower left. Reference: Mary Ryan 59, only state, from the edition of 35.  Pictured in Ryan on page 18.  In good condition (soft folds at bottom edge not near image); the full sheet, 21 1/2 x 25 1/2, the sheet 25 1/2 x 14 7/8 inches.

A very good impression, printed in colors on a cream wove paper.

Disputation exemplifies Landon’s involvement with abstraction, and with Surrealism – with its concerns with irrationality, absurdity and unconsciousness.  Here, figures appear to be in conflict but they seem to arise from the same place, so the conflict portrayed may be psychological, internal.
