  John P. Heins   (1896-1969)

 
  CORSICAN HILLSIDE, ca. 1937. Signed and titled in pencil. Made for the NYC-WPA, but not stamped, and it is #138 on the NY Public Library WPA list. Corsica, best known as the birthplace of Napoleon, mainly has a wild and mountainous landscape, where banditry was not supressed until the 1930s. Although the island is off the coast of Italy and a dialect of Italian is spoken, it became a department of France.Heins had a gift for making beautifully patterned linocuts, and here he depicts a fine farm tucked between steep hillsides. This is a brilliant impression in very fine condition.
