Artist: Steve Wheeler (American, 1912 - 1992).
Title: "Tigresita at Work".
Medium: Color etching.
Date: Composed c1940.
Dimensions: Overall size: 8 1/4 x 6 1/4 in. (210 x 159 mm).
Lot Note(s): Signed "Wheeler" in pencil, lower right. Edition size unknown (perhaps never editioned, with only a few proofs pulled). Cream wove paper. Wide margins. Fine impression with pronounced platemark. Fine condition; printed slightly off-center; deckled right edge. Comment(s): Wheeler’s prints in woodcut and etching are rare. ‘Gordon’s Print Prices’ lists only his silkscreens – not a single woodcut or etching. He is often spoken of as one of the least appreciated, but most deserving, of 20th Century American artists. The influence of Arshile Gorky on Wheeler’s oeuvre is often overlooked. His work is increasingly being "discovered," as evidenced by the sale of his painting "W22 (Man Looking at Pork Chop)" at Christie's New York, 05/21/2008, lot #8, at $109,000 (including premium). There has been recent increasing interest in his fine prints as well. Image copyright © The Estate of Steve Wheeler. [30116-1-800]
