Zorach, William (American, 1887-1966). LANDSCAPE WITH CLOUDS. Watercolor on paper, 1913. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. 9 1/2 x 11 inches, the full sheet. Provenance, The artist to his niece, by descent to her son, then to Susanna Fichera Fine Art, Brunswick, Maine. This watercolor was painted in the year of the Armory Show, in which several of Zorach's works were exhibited, though it does not appear that this was among them. A very strong image, on the cusp between abstraction and representation, with fresh, brilliant colors. In its life the print was matted with its edges covered by the mat, resulting in a perceptible line about 1/4" into the image, at left, running top to bottom, and much less perceptible lines top and right; tiny nicks to the sheet at the top and bottom left corners, else in Fine condition. These notwithstanding, we have rematted it, to float the piece within the mat window.
