Today we have a new P/P post, featuring two yachting prints. The older print, is a chromolithograph, after a famous painting by Frederick S. Cozzens. It is plate XXII in ” American Yachts.” The more recent print is by early 20th century artist Richard Florsheim. The print we feature of his, Moored Boats, is an artist proof, printed before the full edition of 250. It was published by Associated American Artists, a gallery and publishing house founded in 1935 by Reeves Lewenthal. Associated American Artists was founded to bring art to the middle class in post-depression era America, and featured many of the great 20th century Regionalist printmakers- Grant Wood, Thomas Hart Benton, and Peggy Bacon, to name a few.
