|This mezzotint print, entitled "Gypsy", was produced in 1954 by Yozo Hamaguchi (1909-2000), the important artist and printer commonly known as the father of the mezzotint process. Numbered 46/50 and signed by the artist in the margin. Professionally matted and framed under glass. Exposed print measures approximately 12 x 12 inches. Frame measures 20.5 x 26.25 x 1 inches. Mint condition. This haunting work depicts a pig-tailed woman and man with a small dog in the lower right corner. While there are many hundreds of Hamaguchi prints which have appeared at major auction in the past couple decades (the artnet database included 772 works), only a few other Gypsy prints from the original run of 50 have ever appeared at major auction. The most recent known auction sale from this series took place on 5/2/00 at Christie's New York, when lot 313, a print numbered 39/50, was offered with an auction estimate of $5,000-$7,000 and sold for $7,638 including buyer's premium.|
