Five Authors and a Painter.

New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Co., 1997. One of 20 copies, all on Antique JB Green and Japanese Gampi paper, signed and numbered by the artist in pencil on each of the 5 etchings. The names of the subject of each portrait is etched in the plate itself. The authors are: Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Franz Kafka and Virginia Woolf. The artist is, of course, Matisse. Each etching measures 12-1/4 inches x 17 inches, fine. The etchings were printed by Lothar Osterburg and Vincent FitzGerald. Susan Weil's aesthetic predecessors are portrayed in these blind-drawn etchings created around the same time as BLIND MAN'S BLUFF. She has captured the key element in the features of each.
