In very good condition, the full sheet, printed on a thin ivory wove paper, 2.75 x 4, the sheet 9.5 x 7.5 inches, archival mounting. A very fine impression of this rare drypoint, printed in black ink with the drypoint burr extraordinarily rich.
One of the earliest of Davies' modernistic experiments, created at a time when Davies was generally regarded as the preeminent American artist of his generation. After the Armory Show of 1913, Davies experimented with various modernist and cubist perspectives; Ecstacy is one of the earliest and most successful of these explorations. Marsden Hartley said of Davies: Often you have the sensation of looking through a Renaissance window upon a Greek world - a world of Platonic verities in calm relation with each other.
