Etched portrait of Samuel Clemens.

Sanders, Bernard (illus.)

(NY: n.d.). Portrait measures 7 3/4 by 6 inches, printed on a 11 by 7 1/4 inch sheet. The etching shows Clemens with his head resting on the the backs of both hands, and is printed in brown. It has an unfinished quality to it, as though it were a proof. Bernard Sanders was an artist whose portraits of authors appeared regularly on the cover of the Herald Tribune Book Section. He was one of the avant garde group which included Dali, Lenor Fini, Chirico, and Magritte, exhibited by the Julien Levy Gallery where his show of psychological portraits evoked wide critical and psychiatric interest.
