A woodcut hand-printed by the artist himself, Emil Armin, in black and red, with deep, deep colors and gorgeous imagery. From the first printing of this important print.
Created on Emil Armin’s first and very brief visit to Santa Fe in 1928. As Z.J. Jacobson discussed in his book about Armin, this trip was Emil Armin’s first trip to the West, where “he received a cheery welcome from old acquaintances in Santa Fe, and at a party given by Mr. and Mrs. Datus E. Meyers, he met most of the artists of the local colony.” Having little money and very little time to waste, Armin set about creating art. He returned to Chicago with “more than twenty pieces”, including this one.
An example of this work is held by the Art Institute of Chicago. Another was owned by legendary Motown producer Berry Gordy.
