Nevelson, Louise. TREES. Baro 28. Etching and drypoint, 1953-55, editioned in 1965/1966.

A working proof, with unique hand-drawing and hand-coloring, preceding, and aside from the edition of 20, unsigned.14 1/8 x 20 5/8 inches, 355 x 523 mm, (plate), plus full margins. In very good condition.

The plate was executed at Atelier 17, and a few proofs were printed there by Nevelson. These proofs, which precede the formal edition by more than ten years, are very scarce.

The formal edition was printed at the Hollander Graphic Workshop by Emiliano Sironi.

Provenance: Albert Argentieri, New Jersey, friend of the artist; thence by descent, private collection, New Jersey. During the 1950s and 1960s, Argentieri, a photographer and artist, lived near Louise Nevelson and her assistant, Ted Haseltine, who was aclose friend of Argentieri. He photographed Nevelson and her work, along with Haseltine, collected the wooden pieces from abandoned buildings and other locations which Nevelson used to create her sculptural assemblages.

This print was included in the exhibition "Two Generations of Women Printmakers: Atelier 17 and The Art Students League, November 2021 at The Art Students League, New York.
