Launching.
Carborundum mezzotint on cream laid paper, circa 1942-44. 250x188 mm; 9 7/8x7 3/8 inches, 1/2-inch margins. Signed in pencil, lower right. A superb impression of this very scarce print.
According to Ittmann, "The print is recorded as an addendum to the exhibition checklist for Thrash's one-person exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, May 28-June 11, 1944 as "First Launching." It was also shown in the Print Club of Philadelphia's Sixteenth Annual Exhibition of Prints by Philadelphian Artists, November 1-24, 1944, as "launching, carbograph." See Ittmann, Dox Thrash, An African American Master Printer Rediscovered, page 31.
