Nantucket Serigraph by Roy Clifford Smith, circa 1920s to 40s

Price: $550.00

Vintage Nantucket Serigraph of The Town Clock Tower by Roy Clifford Smith, circa 1920s to 1940s, a rare winter scene depicting the historic Unitarian Church on Orange Street, the South Church at the top of Stone Alley, with snow on roofs, fences, bushes and lawn, signed lower right, and titled lower left. Serigraphs are a labor intensive form of original artwork involving hand cutting and hand coloring a silkscreen lithograph.

While Smith's work has a very modern feel anticipating the 1950s and 60s, he was actually active much earlier in the 1920s to 40s. Not much else is known about this artist, other than his dozen and a half to two dozen Nantucket scenes executed in two different sizes, and a larger map of the island. Interestingly, his work was retailed long ago in the Jordan Marsh Home Decorating department.
