Attributed to Leonard Baskin (American, 1922-2000)
Two Prints Related to William Blake: Four Male Heads in Profile (George Richmond Engraving the Shepherd, George Richmond in his Engraving Costume, Blake After his Visionary Self Portrait and Blake After a Drawing by John Linnell); and Four Face or Figure Images (An Adamite Vision of Blake, Blake: A Fragment, Blake: An Imagined Death Mask, and Samuel Palmer). Both signed "Baskin" in pencil l.r., numbered "19/90" and "53/90," respectively, l.l. Sheet sizes 13 1/2 x 10 7/8 in., unmatted, unframed. Condition: Minor toning.
N.B. These portrait heads are related in that, if not Baskin's vision of William Blake himself, the artists depicted were followers of Blake known as "The Ancients."
