Time Silhouette


Edward Landon (1911-1984), Time Silhouette, serigraph, 1969, signed in pencil lower right, inscribed “Edition 30” lower center, and titled lower left. Reference: Ryan 201, only state, edition of 30. In excellent condition (no sign of prior matting or framing), the full sheet with margins (some trivial soft folds near edges), 18 x 9, the sheet 13 1/4 inches.

A fine rich impression. This is the cover print for the Ryan catalogue raisonne of the Landon prints.

Late in his complicated and often difficult life and career Landon often focused very intently on a few well-chosen forms, leaving aside the complex imagery and references of earlier years.  Among these career-culminating images, Time Silhouette is one of his most successful.
