McCarron 62, second state (of 2), intended edition 100, 104 printed. In excellent condition (evidence of prior hinging upper corners).
A superb, atmospheric impression in warm black ink, with rich burr, on cream laid paper.
Derricks at Night is one of the few Lewis prints having more than one state; the composition was substantially set in the first state but small adjustments in many areas were made for a second state (e.g., “wooden slat below globe of lamp defined; bracket holding streetlight strengthened”, etc.).
Derricks at night is one of Lewis’s great Precisionist works, seemingly also demonstrating a cubist sensibility.
