Isabel Bishop, ‘Isabel Bishop.  Eight Etchings, 1930-1959.’, 1985, Sylvan Cole Gallery

New York: Sylvan Cole Gallery, 1985.

A portfolio of eight pencil-signed etchings by Bishop, each in its own folder.

From a total edition of 60, all printed on fine Rives wove paper, this is one of only 7 sets of artist's proofs, with a signed presentation inscription from the artist to Sylvan Cole, the publisher. This is an outstanding association copy: Sylvan Cole (1918-2005), our founder, was the dean of American print dealers, and he kept this portfolio in his private collection until his death.

Sylvan was a close friend of Bishop's and supervised the compilation of Teller's catalogue raisonné of her prints.

Folio. Loose as issued. FINE AND BRIGHT, with no defects. In the original cloth clamshell case (a tiny bit of scuffing to case).

Signature: Each etching signed in pencil by Bishop.

Publisher: Sylvan Cole Gallery

Teller 11A, 18A, 37A, 40A, 44A, 49A, 50A, and 54A.
