  Back    
  Reginald Marsh   (1898-1954)

 
  MODERN 1939 VENUS, 1939. Sasowsky 184. Signed in the plate, "Marsh 1939." This is from the Whitney Museum edition of 100 and has the WM blindstamp in the margin. The banner on the prize-winning Venus reads "Steeplechase Park/ Modern 1939 Venus." Steeplechase Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn, is gone, but it was one of the best amusement parks ever created. The movie cameras, the microphone and the watching crowds are a wonderful evocation of life as the country was emerging from the Great Depression. A fine impression in mint condition.
