Flight, 1954

Wien 298, only state. Wood engraving on wove japanese paper, full margins.
One of only 22 signed impressions and 1 unsigned proof (the edition of 250 was never completed). Very rare. Signed, titled and numbered 21/250 in pencil. Red petrel cypher lower left and the Origins of Art stamp verso.

4 7/8 x 9 1/2 in.; 12.38 x 24.13 cm.

Flight was printed by Landacre as a vertical composition, or a horizontal, as pictured, both equally compelling but with divergent effects. An abstraction in the vertical configuration, Flight reads as a landscape in the horizontal format. The print was included in the 50th anniversary exhibition in Philadelphia in 1954 to honor the first flight of the Wright Brothers.
