Lithograph on paper, 8 3/4" by 12 3/8" inside the mat, 13 3/4" by 17 3/4" as framed, by American artist STOW WENGENROTH (1905-1978), pencil signed at lower right by the artist. Titled "Woodland Ledge" (created 1960 in an edition of approximately 50 examples for associate members of the Print Makers Society of California), this is a typical work of Wengenroth, who is today best known for his fine lithography work consisting mostly of scenes of the Northeast coast from Long Island to Maine, and a few images of New York City which are especially sought after. The artist studied with John Carlson and George Bridgman, and attended the Art Students League in New York and the Grand Central School of Art. Exhibitions at the Salmagundi Club, National Academy and elsewhere followed. The artist did work in drawings as well but it is really for his skill in lithography that he is most appreciated and remembered. Wengenroth's works were usually issued in small editions. Over the years a number of them have been damaged or abused when out of the frame, in my experience. This example is framed and has survived in fine collectable condition. The subject is a ledge of pine-topped rock in Corea, Maine, near Acadia National Park.
