A woodblock print on paper of an interior space by well-listed artist Edgar Yaeger (American; 1904-1997), dated 1930. The print depicts a domestic interior with a vase of flowers on the corner of a table and a landscape painting hanging on the far wall to the left. The work is signed in graphite to the lower right margin and is presented matted in a protective sleeve.
Known for his modern abstract style and his WPA murals of the Depression era, Yaeger was influenced by European modernists such as Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso and Giorgio de Chirico. Yaeger’s work has been exhibited at many institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, the Detroit Institute of Art, the Corcoran Gallery, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, among others.
