Two Models on a Bed

Reginald Marsh - Two Models on a Bed

Reginald Marsh (1898-1954), Two Models on a Bed, lithograph, 1928, signed and inscribed “15 proofs” [also initialed and dated in the plate]. Reference: Sasowsky 9, only state, from the edition of 15. In excellent condition, printed on chine applique on a stiff cream wove paper, 9 x 10 1/2, the sheet 12 5/8 x 17 3/4 inches.

A fine impression.

This is a relatively rare print, from a small edition (15); since several impressions are in public institutions (such as the Boston Public Library, Yale University Art Gallery, New York Public Library) the print is rarely obtainable on the market.

Although Marsh printed many of his etchings and other prints such as linoleum blocks himself, it is not known who printed his lithographs. This lithograph was surely made and printed in Paris, and was among the group of lithographs Marsh brought back with him after his Paris trip in 1928.
