Irving Place Burlesque, Lithograph, 1928


Reginald Marsh (1898-1954), Irving Place Burlesque, lithograph, 1928, signed in pencil lower right and inscribed 25 proofs lower left margin [also signed and dated in the plate upper left]. Reference: Sasowsky 15, only state. Chine colle on a thick cream wove paper, the matrix in adequate condition but the backing sheet with multiple (repaired) tears, some going just up to the image. Although these tears do not materially interfere with the matrix this print should not be considered by anyone at all fussy about condition. 10 x 11 5/8, the sheet 11 7/8 x 13 1/4 inches, archival matting.

Provenance: Estate of Fred Shapiro

A good impression.

Marsh made a number of prints of the Irving Place Burlesque, including at least three etchings, as well as drawings and paintings of this subject; this is his only lithograph of this subject.

This print was illustrated in Vanity Fair (December, 1928), p. 90.
