Stow Wengenroth, Roadside Garden, Drawing
Item Details
Description
Title: Roadside Garden. [Port Clyde, Maine].
Stow Wengenroth (1906-1978)
Medium: Drybrush drawing on illustration board, 1965.
Signed in ink, lower left in image.
Image size 17 3/4 x 22 1/2" (45.1 x 59.7 cm).

Drawing for the lithograph of the same title. The lithograph is #298 in "Stow Wengenroth's Lithographs" by Ronald and Joan Stuckey.

Stow Wengenroth is a well-known American artist who created wonderful images of New England, New York City, and Long Island. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, on July 25, 1906, to Frederick Wengenroth, an architect, and Isabelle Stow, a textile designer. Wengenroth was a master at crayon lithography, and published several books and articles on the subject, including "Making a Lithograph" in 1936. The majority of his lithographs are black and white. He printed a few in two colors which have a grey background for atmosphere then black for the information. One has to look closely to even see the second color. He preferred his stones to have a bit of a grain, so they were not sanded smooth, as he used the grain to his advantage in these images.
Condition
Condition: Good condition, a couple of tape marks in the upper margin, not affecting the image.
