Leonard Baskin, American, 1922-2000, "Distention". This etching by Leonard Baskin, c. 1965, measures 36 x 14 inches and is pencil signed and titled on the lower margin. An artist proof, printed on a hand-shaped etching plate, using a heavy weight paper. It is #522 in the Fern and O'Sullivan catalog. In the era of abstract expressionism, Baskinís work was always representational, with a strong classical influence. Baskin attended Yale University School of Fine Arts and founded The Gehenna Press. After a three year stint in the Navy, Baskin studied art under the GI Bill, traveling to France and Italy. While teaching at Smith College in Northhampton, MA, he met and became great friends with the poet, Ted Hughes and together they collaborated on many art projects.
