Offered in a fine etching by well listed artist Kenneth Hayes Miller. Play is one of six etchings from Six American Etchings: The New Republic Portfolio which was issued in 1924. This set has unusual historical importance: it includes prints exemplifying both traditional approaches to American printmaking, including those by Ernest Haskell, Peggy Bacon, and John Sloan, as well as examples of important early American Modernist printmaking: Edward Hopper's Night Shadows and John Marin's Brooklyn Bridge No. 6 (Swaying). Miller's signature subjects were ordinary people, especially women, going about their lives and this print is a fine example of his work. In addition to being a noted artist, Miller is regarded as one of American art's great teachers for his sphere of influence has risen to the stature of the country's most beloved and most expensive works of art.
