On the Beach (By the Sea)


Edward Landon (1911-1984), On the Beach (By the Sea), serigraph, 1962,  signed, titled and numbered 11/23. Reference: Mary Ryan 145, from the edition of 23, only state. In excellent condition, apparently never matted or framed, on a medium/heavy ivory wove paper, with margins, 11 1/4 x 20 1/2, the sheet 13 1/4 x 24 inches.

A fine fresh impression.

Landon was a pioneer in the creation of abstract imagery using the medium of the serigraph. Landon studied natural phenomena patiently and persistently through his career, so that his nature studies, however abstract, have a close relationship to reality. In On the Beach the black shapes of sea creatures and vegetation are superimposed upon a setting of sand, sea and sky.
