1940s Vintage African-american Children 2 Prints W Watercolor Gouache Black Art For Sale
American School, circa 1940s - 1950s
African-American Children at Play: Two Prints
Screenprints[?] with hand coloring in watercolor/gouache
Each signed in the matrix at lower right "Nank"
Approx. 11 x 8.75 in.; housed in matching stained and painted wood frames (with glass) measuring 12 x 9.75 in.
Light wear to frames; a few spots of mild scattered soiling; otherwise near fine overall, the colors remaining vivid and unfaded (not examined outside frames).
Comments: One image depicts a group of brightly shirted boys playing with a red ball as a toddler looks on; the other includes "twin" girls in matching outfits and hats
and a number of younger children. Though I'm not 100% certain as to the media used, the prints appear to have silkscreened outlines in black (the ink seems to be
thick and slightly glossy), which were then colored by hand with watercolor and gouache paints, as is clear from the tiny drips, pools, and other telltale variations.
