Easter Angel, 1955

Fine and Looney 347. Edition of 30 to 40 impressions. According to Fine and Looney, Spruance often stored his prints unsigned, unnumbered, and otherwise unannotated until they sold. Due to this practice, the inscribed edition size often varies among impressions. Thus, while the catalogue raisonné records an edition size of either 30 or 40, this impression is inscribed "Ed. 35". Signed and dated in pencil lower right: "Spruance 55" inscribed lower left: "Ed. 35". Dedicated in lower margin: "for Betty - happy birthday - affectionately -". A fine impression in fine condition, printed on full sheet measuring 25 1/2 x 19 3/4".
