Milton Avery (1893-1965), My Wife Sally, drypoint, 1934, signed, dated and numbered in pencil [also signed in the plate on Sally’s writing pad], from the edition of 100. Reference: Lunn 5 (only state). In excellent condition, on a cream wove paper, the full sheet, 5 5/8 x 8 1/2, the sheet 13 x 14 3/4 inches, archival window matting.

A fine fresh impression, printed in a dark brown ink.

Provenance: Associated American Artists, with their certificate appended to the mat verso.

This is a relatively early print by Avery, done in a period when he was creating drypoints and before the work on wood. At this stage he was working in a mannerist/modernist mode, depicting Sally with an exaggeratedly long arm, with a modernist flattening of the composition.

Sally Avery (1902=2003) was, of course, a distinguished artist in her own right.
