The Fair's exhibitors have had long experience in their fields, and are highly respected by museum curators and collectors. Because The Capital Art Fair is small, and takes place in a comfortable setting, those who attend will find that the exhibitors are relaxed, friendly and open to conversation about the work they offer, and about the interests of visitors. These interactions are often learning experiences for all who participate. capitalartprintfair.com⁣

Grant Wood created the lithograph "March" in 1941. "I am building an art of and for a specific locality. If I have reached an audience wider than my own region, it is only proof that Iowa is a cross section of the world, and that art created out of local situations can attain a significance that is not limited geographically." - Wood

JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER, American (1834-1903)

The Kitchen
Etching, 1858, Glasgow 16 (ii/III), Kenedy 24 (ii/III); 67 impressions are recorded in the Glasgow catalogue. 8 7/8 x 6 1/8 in. Signed in the plate in the lower right. This is a very fine impression printed with plate tone on chine appliqué. The margins are substantial measuring about 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" in. The condition is fine apart from a very faint suggestion of toning within an earlier mat opening and traces of an old adhesive, verso, along the top edge of the sheet. This outstanding early work by Whistler was published in the "French Set" in this state with the name and address of the printer in the lower right ("Imp. Delâtre. Rue St. Jacques. 171."). An impression of the first state has not been located by the Whistler Etchings Project. Thirty-nine impressions of this important etching are listed in museum collections and today it's considered to be an uncommon print.
