Tobias and the Angel [Print].

Portland, ME: Wolfe Editions, nd [circa 1990]. Limited Edition. Print. "Tobias and the Angel" is included in the "complete graphic works of Leonard Baskin". (Fern & O'Sullivan, 367) There were at least three printings of this engraving, including one of 300 copies, another of 200 copies. This particular copy is a "printers proof" from an edition of 12 printed by David Wolfe at Wolfe Editions. The plate, originally engraved in 1958, had cracked with time and drying. Wolfe spent weeks slowly moistening the wood to "bring it back". While it falls outside the print run of 12, it is printed on the same exceptional paper. One of our very favorite of Baskin's works, it is an exceptional image. Near Fine+. Very minor edge wear, else bright and clean. Image 15"x15", page approx. 19"x24". Wood engraving. Item #6151
