Sybil Andrews (1898-1992), Sails, linocut in colors, 1960, signed (twice), titled, and inscribed “TP” in pencil; trial proofs aside from the edition of 60. Reference: White 50. In good condition, two sheets, each image 7 1/8 x 9, each sheet 10 5/8 x 11 inches.

Consisting of two sheets, unattached, each with the entire image, and placed one atop the other. The bottom sheet: signed in pencil twice and inscribed “TP”; the top sheet annotated “sample printing”. Each sheet printed on tissue-thin laid Japan.

A brilliant vividly colored presentation, as achieved through the juxtapositioning of two proof impressions of this print, presumably by the artist. As typical for Andrews’ impressions, the printing is on an exceedingly thin Japan paper. The top proof impression is comparable to the definitive edition, with the colors true and fresh. But the colors are strengthened even further when the proof is juxtaposed on the bottom (signed) proof, which is itself a slightly more lightly colored version of the print. Together, the print(s) achieve a striking, even three dimensional effect.
