THE LITHOGRAPHS OF STOW WENGENROTH
By Ronald and Joan Stuckey
Artist and craftsman, quiet explorer of country and city, Stow Wengenroth has devoted his life to expression through drawing and lithography. Each year his personal harvest is a small number of lithographs. Working from drawings made outdoors or in his studio, he redraws the design on the smooth surface of the heavy lithographic stone, from which, later, a limited edition is printed. His work of more than forty years is described and reproduced in these pages. Two young collectors, Ronald and Joan Stuckey, have gathered information in talks with the artist and through his own record of his prints. Their essay on Wengenroth's life, viewpoint and techniques, and their year-by-year survey of his lithographs, is joined by contributions by Albert Reese, former director of the Print Department of Kennedy Galleries in Manhattan, and by Sinclair Hitchings and Paul Swenson, Keeper of Prints and Assistant Keeper of Prints of the Boston Public Library. An outstanding feature of the book is its wealth of reproductions of Wengenroth's dry brush drawings and prints. The lithographs are shown complete from 1931 through 1972. Today, the great succession of Wengenroth's lithographs continues. Recently the artist moved from Green-port, Long Island, to Rockport, Massachusetts, now his base for continuing explorations of the New England coast. He once said, "I owe Maine so much that it will take all of my productive artistic life to express it!' Cape Ann, Massachusetts, where his new home is located, is another favorite place, source of many subjects of his prints. An expert team has been responsible for the production of this book. Design is by Klaus Gemming, with composition of text by Finn Typographic Service and reproductions and printing by The Meriden Gravure Company. Reproduced on the front of the dust jacket is Wengenroth's lithograph Toliver Door while the back of the dust jacket shows the lithograph Strange Companions.
