256. David G. Wright, “Peter Moran’s Monotypes Rediscovered,” Vol. 43, No. 1 (Spring 2018), 2-21, 17 illus.
The recent discovery of six monotypes signed by Peter Moran has enabled David G. Wright to evaluate Moran’s use of the process as it relates to his work as an etcher and painter. The freedom and bravura displayed in these monotypes places Moran at the forefront of artists who have employed this graphic process. The essay includes an appendix of monotypes exhibited by Moran during his lifetime, at the Philadelphia Society of Etchers, December 1882–February 1883, Frederick Keppel Gallery, New York, December 1887–January 1888, and James McClees Gallery, Philadelphia, November–December 1888. David G. Wright is the author of Domestic and Wild: Peter Moran’s Images of America (2010), a two-volume work on the life and art of Peter Moran, painter-etcher, with a catalog of prints.
