January Day


Edward Landon (1911-1984), January Day, serigraph, 1979, signed, titled and annotated “Edition 20”. Reference: Ryan 106, only state, from the edition of 20. In excellent condition, printed on a cream wove paper, the full sheet, 13 1/2 x 9 1/2, the sheet 16 x 12 1/2 inches, never framed or matted.

A fine fresh impression.

Landon was a pioneer in the creation of abstract imagery using the medium of the serigraph. This aesthetically elegant construction demonstrates the validity of critic James Wechsler’s observation that as Landon matured as an artist he “honed in on what was most important, his compositions became less complicated.”
