  Albert Heckman   (1893-1971)

  THE VILLAGE, ca. 1937. Ed. 15/25. LC #5. Signed, titled, and numbered in pencil. This image is probably of a village near the Hudson River, since Heckman worked in the Woodstock area. He was a pupil of Arthur Dow, studied at Columbia University, and was part of the NYC WPA, doing etching and block printing. In this print, the influences of Cubism in the structure and Impressionism in the flickering lines are striking. See Phagan, "Made in Woodstock," Vassar College, 2002.
  Etching & drypoint, 10 1/2 x 14 1/8 inches. $600.
