Collection of Original Paintings, Wood Engravings, an Ink Drawing and a Charcoal Sketch by George Hoehn, 1966 - 1971.
Includes: 11 ink and watercolor paintings, 4 b/w prints from wood engravings, charcoal sketch. Most on thick cream paper approx. 15" x 11-1/2", size of illustrations varies from approx. 4" x 4" to 9" x 6". All signed and dated; of the prints, two are marked as artist's proofs, one is marked as a state proof, and one is numbered 5 of 12. Minor staining to margins of two pieces; moderate edgewear to one of the prints; penciled notations to versos. Very Good to Fine.
A loose collection of abstract drawings and paintings, showcasing Hoehn's early style. Hoehn was educated at San Jose State University and San Francisco State University, graduating from the latter with an MFA in graphic arts. He appears to have remained in the Bay Area for much if not all of his life, exhibiting at local galleries and teaching, and sometimes working in the print studio at Smith Andersen Gallery in Palo Alto; we note one March 1980 exhibit at that gallery that included both Hoehn and Larry Rivers.
Scarce. We find only a box of Hoehn's material listed in the collections of the MOMA.
