A retablo-like image of San Geronimo, pencil signed in lower right margin by the noted Santa Fe printmaker LOUIE EWING (1908-1983). The print is a silkscreen, which was introduced into the Southwest by Ewing after encouragement from the WPA in the 1930's. Ewing was born in Idaho and after art training in California, he moved to Santa Fe in 1935, where he became especially well known for his prints, though he did work in other media. Most of the prints show familiar landscapes and sights of the Southwest, or, saints and other religious imagery derived from Spanish New Mexico folk art. This example measures 10 1/2" by 8" inside the present mat. This has traveled without glass, and the lack of protection has led to a 3/4" stub of the paper above and to the left of the saint's head. The paper is all present but this is a spot of damage, which could be corrected. The print is on thin paper which is not laid to a board----only taped at top edge to the mat..
