Warrington Colescott

(American, 1921-2018)

Welcome to Watt Park, 1985

Color etching and aquatint on paper

23 1/2" x 35 1/2" (image)

 

A sardonic vision of a national park ravaged by American industry. Pencil-signed, dated, titled, and editioned (artist's proof) to the bottom margin. The glazed frame measures 34 1/2" x 46 1/2".  Like his brother Robert Colescott, Warrington Colescott created artwork with a biting satire; a master printer, he ran Mantegna Press with his wife, artist Frances Myers.

Condition

Very good condition.
