Resurrection – First State

Arthur B. Davies (1862-1928), Resurrection (aka Flying Figures; Border of the Lake), drypoint, 1916, signed with the estate stamp lower right. Reference: Czestochowski 35, first state (of 3), before aquatint.  The total printing was unknown but small. With margins, printed on a very thin wove paper, in good condition, 3 x 5, the sheet 6 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches.

A fine proof impression, with substantial burr from the drypoint work, printed with a veil of plate tone overall.

Aquatint was added in the second state to many areas of the plate except the figure; in the third state aquatint was added to the figure.

Czestochowski notes that this print was probably number six in the October 1916 exhibit of the New York Society of Etchers.
