Peggy Bacon, drypoint, The Bridge Party, signed, dated (Nov. 1918) and titled (Bridge) in pencil by the artist. Flint 3. In generally ok but rough condition as befits an early working proof  pulled by Bacon herself, with diagonal folds upper and lower right, with margins (1/2 inch top and sides, 1 inch bottom, pencil mark right margin.  4 1/8 x 5 inches, archival mounting.

A very fine impression of this rarity (we’ve seen only one other impression in 30 years). In this early impression, the burr from the drypoint work creates a brilliant satiny black.

Bacon (1895-1987) was influenced by the new modernist/cubist movements in art in her earliest prints; The Bridge Party is one of her finest efforts working in this idiom.
