"Asleep in the Hay," Art Deco Print with Half-Nude Male by Lynd Ward, 1932

$3,850

About

Famed for his woodcut book illustrations in the Art Deco era, Lynd Ward produced a series of dramatic images that reminded the reader of film noirs of the era, with spotlit figures in dark settings that seemed to presage flight, fear, hope and death. Unsigned plates from the books he illustrated are not uncommon, but signed prints such as this are rare. This image was an illustration for "Wild Pilgrimage" by Ward, published by Harrison Smith & Robert Haas in 1932. It shows a half-nude man, upside down, asleep in a luxurious pile of hay, with a moonlight landscape outside the window, all executed in precise, beautiful detail. The print is signed in the lower-right. (Dimensions include matte; print itself is 9.5" high by 6.5" wide.)
