On the Beach – Rare Proof


Harriet Lanfair (1900-1988) lithograph, c. 1935, signed in pencil on lower right margin. Printed on a very light japan paper, with margins. A proof impression, with  printers ink and creasing in irregularly trimmed margins (as characteristic of a working proof, these margin defects not affecting image), slight foxing also mostly in margins. Archival matting, 8 1/4 x 13 inches, the sheet 12 x 15 inches.

A fine impression of this rarity – this is a working proof impression, and we know of no edition or other impressions of this fascinating composition that have appeared on the market.

Lanfair, a California painter and printmaker (born in Pasadena, studied art in California and lived in the LA area), specialized in lithography; she exhibited actively with the LA Print Group during the 1930’s.
