*Title: Typically AAA published prints were signed in pencil but without further pencil annotation; Garden Boy is the title as it appeared on the AAA label.

**Date: 1950 is the date this print was published by Associated American Artists, not necessarily (though probably), the date it was created by the artist.

***Medium: Although Associated American Artists (AAA), the publisher of this print, calls Garden Boy a drypoint, it is highly unusual to find a drypoint in an edition of 250. The explanation for such a large drypoint edition has yet to be determined.


  • This print, as was typical for AAA editions, was published in an edition of 250 impressions (Windisch).
  • One observed impression (not pictured) is inscribed in pencil, l.l. "State Proof n°2."

State: An impression with the dedication noted under "Subject" below is inscribed, l.l., "state proof n°"; however, no number is present). (See Fig. 1 below.)
