More Information

Signed and dated 1942 in pencil. A fine impression, with fresh colors, on cream wove paper, with full margins (5/8 to 1 3/8 inches). Minor surface scuffs in the image, visible only in raking light; slight toning to the paper within a previous mat opening, otherwise in excellent condition. Scarce.

Landon's complex abstraction plays on the tension of contrasting size, shape, and color, to achieve a dynamic yet balanced composition.

"Counterpoint", acknowledged as a masterwork of serigraphy, is included in a number of important surveys of American printmaking, including: "A Spectrum of Innovation: Color in American Printmaking", David Acton, New York and London, 1990; "American Screenprints", Reba and Dave Williams, New York, 1987; "The American Scene: Prints from Hopper to Pollock", Stephen Coppel, The British Museum, 2008.
