Howard Cook (1901-1980), The Station, etching, 1928, signed in pencil lower right and inscribed imp. Reference: Duffy 99, edition of 30 (intended edition of 50). In very good condition, printed on a tissue thin Japan paper, with margins, 7 x 9, the sheet 7 7/8 x 10 inches, archival matting. A very fine impression, with exquisite detailing, printed by Cook personally. By his late 20’s Cook had already mastered both the technique of wood engraving and etching. Here, he demonstrates an astonishing facility with etching, creating snow, smoke, shadows and shades of light with the tiniest etching lines imaginable. The Station has a small-town personality of its own, set in a modernist industrial context as evidenced by the train, of course, and a billowing smokestack.
