|The Prints of Ernest Fiene:
A Catalogue Raisonné -- in progress
Catalogue Entry # 27
(Click here for explanation of catalogue entry #s and titles.)
Medium: Drypoint and roulette
Edition: At least 16*
Dimensions: 6 x 7 7/8 in.
Printer: Currently unknown (CU)**
Typical pencil annotations on impressions from the edition: Numbered (number of impression only*) and titled, l.l.; signed and dated, l.r.
Date: The number that designates the year (1927) on the Vassar impression includes a "7" that could easily be mistaken for a "4". Indeed the catalogue "Made in Woodstock Printmaking from 1903 to 1945" published by the Francis Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College, lists the date of "Spring Landscape" as 1924, but the correct date is 1927.
*Edition: The numbering on this print includes only one number as opposed to the more common #/# format on most of Fiene's other prints. This one number signifies the particular impression within the edition, not the total number of impressions in the edition, which remains unknown. Thus LACMA's impression is numbered "14" and Vassar's impression is numbered "16." These are the only two proofs that have been observed.
**Printer: Fiene is known to have printed at least some of his early etchings himself, having followed his signature with "Imp" to indicate this. Although George Miller was printing Fiene's lithographs by 1927, he is not known to have printed Fiene's intaglio prints.
Exhibitions (selected): 1) Los Angeles Museum Exhibition Park, June, 1928. 2) "Made in Woodstock Printmaking from 1903 to 1945," July 5-September 15, 2002.
