Gibson, Charles Dana and Remington, Frederick. Set of four color reproductions of Charles Dana Gibson works and from Frederic Remington, presented in a large folder. Sheet size: 14 x 19½". Image size: 9½ x 11½". The folder shows water damage at the crease and the resulting stains, which would be easily matted out, have affected the border edge of all eight prints. Gibson's "Reciprocity" has superficial soiling and would benefit from a gentle cleaning. Each piece is labeled with a small, decorative paper tag noting "Artist's Proof", all of which have toned. Overall, condition ranges from good to very good.

Likely issued early in the 20th century (with copyrights ranging from 1902-1907), these are eight beautiful examples from two of America's best-known artists. We must confess to curiosity about the decision that grouped Gibson's square-jawed men and elegantly beautiful women with Remington's energetic depictions of life on the frontier… In any case, this group offers a window on popular art of the early 1900s.
Estimated Value $125 - 150.

Realized $72
