About

Jacques La Grange, 'Sappho Passes Livonia, 1871', color woodcut, edition 500, 1934. Signed and numbered '21/500' in pencil. A fine impression, with fresh colors, on cream wove paper, with margins (3/8 to 1 7/8 inches), in excellent condition. A work from La Grange’s celebrated series of woodcuts 'Drama and Color in the America's Cup Races'. 'Sappho' was one of two defender yachts at the second America's Cup challenge (1871), stepping in when defender 'Columbia' was damaged in the third race. 'Livonia' was a new yacht designed by Britisher William Townsend based on the lines of 'America' and brought to the race by James Lloyd Ashbury in his second failed attempt to take the Cup back to England. 'Livonia' was able to win only one of the five races of the 1871 America's Cup. ABOUT THE ARTIST Jacques La Grange was born in Clanwilliam (near Cape Town) in South Africa in 1895. He studied at London University and later immigrated to the United States. La Grange established himself as a painter, illustrator, and printmaker specializing in nautical subjects. He and his wife, Helen La Grange, published 'Drama and Color in the America's Cup Races' in 1934 and 'Clipper Ships of America and Great Britain 1833-1869', in 1936. Both were deluxe hardcover limited edition volumes with signed original color woodblock prints. Jacques had solo exhibitions at the Buchanan Gallery in 1929; the Babcock Gallery and the 56th Street Gallery, New York, in 1930; and at the Nicholas Roerich Museum, New York, in 1931.
