House at Silverton, Signed & Titled Limited Edition Print by Lloyd Foltz
Foltz, Lloyd, Wichita, KS 1968 - This is an original pencil signed blockprint selected by the Friends of Art at KSU to be their annual gift print in 1968 (a tradition continued by Friends of Art following the demise of the Prairie Print Makers organization in 1965). It is an unframed, woodcut on paper by Prairie Print Maker Lloyd Foltz with a 7-1/2" x 10" image on a 10-1/4" x 14" sheet, Signed in pencil LR, Titled in pencil LL, with artist's chop in Block. Lloyd C Foltz (1897-1990) is an American artist whose work focused on topics popularized by Regionalists and American scene imagists, incl small town views, Western mountain and prairie landscapes, vernacular architecture, locomotives and railroad yards. The artist made sketches on site as a starting point then finished his works based on the ideal that art, in its final form, should incorporate elements of memory and imagination. He created more than 100 lithographs, graphite sketches, ink drawings, aquatints, etchings, watercolors and block prints. Critics say Foltz came closest to matching the technical versatility of his mentor and lithographic master of the period, C. A. Seward. The popularity of Foltz, and fellow Prairie Print Makers, paralleled the growth of America's Arts & Crafts movement where attributes of hand-craftsmanship and fine yet simple detail were highly regarded.
