Catalogue Raisonne' (Szoke:140): "Child Reading--Red," color screenprint, 1970,
on Arches paper, signed, titled and inscribed artist's proof. Edition of 100 only.
Printed by Printer Fine Creations, Inc., New York, with full margins, as framed in
chrome, under glass, 28 x 18.


Curator's Comment: Generally we don't sell prints, but this was so rare and so
beautiful we had to own it for our collectors. Signed by Will Barnet, owned by the
Oresman's, who collected some 600 paintings, drawings, prints and photographs
of people reading.  Barnet (1911-2012) was one of the greatest artists of the
twentieth century and the supreme American print maker.  In 2011, he was
awarded the National Medal of Arts, which was presented by President Obama
in a White House ceremony. Will Barnet typically retained his proof copies for his
final inventory. But the Oresman's were among his most important private
patrons. Only a single print copy of this work was listed in the final inventory,
instead of the actual artist's proof, which we now offer. Robert Yahner, now
Registrar of the National Arts Club collection identifies the subject as Barnet's
daughter Ona. Yahner worked as Barnet's assistant during the years the artist
lived and worked at the club's Grammercy Park studio residence. Call us at 646-
