Bishop, Isabel. OUTDOOR SODA COUNTER (OUTDOOR SODA FOUNTAIN, SODA FOUNTAIN). T.46. Fifth state of five. Etching, 1953. 6 1/4 x 4 1/8 inches; 159 x 105 mm. Titled "Outdoor Soda Counter" and signed in pencil. This fifth state, from 1953, varied from the earlier states in that the plate was cut down from 7 x 5 inches to its present size. An edition of 50 was published in 1978. This is a proof printed by Bishop at some time between the creation of the plate and publication of the edition. Variant titles, as this is, or no tiling, are not unusual with these proofs of Bishop's prints.
