Thomas Nason "Wooded Shore" Original Framed 1931 Wood Engraving


Excellent: Image is not yellow like our pictures suggest. See detail pics to view the accurate color. Framed, matted and sealed under glass. Pencil signed and numbered 40/100. Sight size: 4" x 7 1/4". Nason taught himself etching and print making by familiarizing himself with the print departments in neighborhood bookstores and became friends with Percy Grassby, a wood engraver whom he accompanied on sketching trips. By 1921, Nason had produced his first woodcuts and progressed to wood engraving. He acquired a small hand press and worked in a room in his house. In 1923, his artistic reputation was established when he sold six woodcuts to Century Magazine. During the next few years, his prints were sold by bookstores and art dealers in Boston and New York. Nason continued secretarial work until 1931, when his employer died; at that time he decided to devote himself full-time to his art. Nason earned a living from a series of commissions for bookplates, and from magazine and book illustrations, such as Robert Frost's You Came Too. Over the course of his career Nason produced more than six hundred prints. He was elected to the National Academy of Design in 1936.
