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

Price: $475.00

Vintage Nantucket Serigraph of Union Street by Roy Clifford Smith, circa 1920s to 1940s, depicting the historic whaling Captain Ayer's house along the bend of Union Street, across from Stone Alley and what is now The Union Street Inn, beneath the embankment in the old town, signed lower right. 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.
