About

Things are not Right! Silk screen, c. 1970 Signed, editioned, and inscribed "To V.V." in pencil by the artist Image size: 2 x 2 inches Sheet size: 5 x 4 1/8 inches One of an unnumbered edition of 40 Condition: Excellent Provenance: Estate of the Artist By decent to V. V. (niece?) Timely social commentary created in the 1970's. Edward August Landon 1911-1984 (Born and died in Hartford, CT; lived and worked mostly in New York City) Edward Landon, painter, printmaker, and sculptor, dropped out of high school to enroll in the Hartford Art School. He eventually moved to Greenwich Village in New York to study at the Art Students League with Guatemalan abstract expressionist Carlos Merida (1891-1984). Another important artist he would be indebted to was Arthur Dove, who encouraged his venture into the art of abstraction. In 1939, Landon was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to work on Non-Objective Painting. He eventually became intrigued with the silkscreen process and turned away from painting, helping to organize the group known as the National Serigraph Society, and becoming editor of its publication, the “Serigraph Quarterly.” He served as president of the Society and helped with exhibitions, lectures, and demonstrations. In 1950, he was awarded a Fulbright Grant to study in Norway, where he lectured on serigraphy and arranged serigraph exhibitions. Landon is credited with more than 240 silkscreen prints and is recognized as one of the most outstanding and accomplished silkscreen printmakers of his time. Some of his notable abstract prints are, "Arrangement with Blue Major," inspired by his love of music; "Nothing Begins, Nothing Ends," and "Time Silhouette," relating to his studies of Nordic cultures.
