Antique Prints

Since 1763 the name 'Russborough' has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art. In the closing decades of the last century the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex, which specialises in an individual mix of antique maps, paintings and prints.

While Lord Russborough's Annex features a great many works of museum calibre, we also offer a wonderful selection of prints priced at under $100.

The Following images were published by The Associated American Artists (A.A.A.) which was created in 1934 with the mission of bridging the gap between artists and their audiences by making fine art affordable, accessible, and attractive for the general American public. The organization commissioned original graphic art from many notable American artists, whose art often reflected or commented on the social ideas of the era. All lithographs and etchings were produced in limited editions. Each has its original certificate of authenticity. Many early AAA prints which sold originally for $5 go to art collectors for thousands of dollars today.

Unfortunately, the First World War began two years later and (being Canadian) Diana Thorne was detained by the German government as a hostile alien. She managed, however, to escape to England where she supported herself as a reporter, librarian and writer. At this time she began her first experiments in both illustration and etching and engraving. Diana Thorne moved to the United States in 1920. During the following years she became one of America's most recognized canine artists. Well known as an author/illustrator, with some 50 books to her credit. She also executed a series of popular sports. Her main reason for success was a total dedication to her drawing and love for her subject matter, she had a great ability to show motion.

One of America's greatest twentieth century social and satirical artists, William Gropper studied painting and printmaking under George Bellows at the Ferrer School in San Francisco (1913-14), at the National Academy of Design (1914) and at the New York School of Fine Art (1915-18). He was first employed as a staff artist for The New York Tribune (1919-21) and later for the New York World (1925-27). During this time Gropper also contributed many drawings to Leftist publications such as 'The New Masses' and 'The Liberator'. By the mid 1920's William Gropper had established himself as a major satirical artist and lithography, silkscreening and etching became one of his most potent weapons for launching his attacks against big business and big politics. In the following decades William Gropper achieved a fine reputation around the world. In 1958, for example, he received the Young Israel Prize. Today, many international institutions include examples of his paintings and prints in their collections. The Museum of Modern Art in New York lists over thirty of Gropper's etchings and lithographs in its permanent collection.

This quintessential Judaic image depicts Rabbi's debating the Lulav [or Yemenite pronunciation lolav; Hebrew ‫לולב‬‎‎] which is a closed frond of the date palm tree. It is one of the Four Species used during the Jewish Holiday of Sukkot. Published as part of Moskowitz's Torah suite.

Ira Moskowitz Polish/American 1912-2001 was born in Galicia, Poland in 1912, emigrating with his family to New York in 1927. He enrolled at the Art Student's League and studied there from 1928-31. In 1935, he traveled to Paris and then lived until 1937 in what is now Israel. He returned in 1938 to marry artist Anna Barry in New York. The couple soon visited Taos and Santa Fe in New Mexico, returning there for extended periods until in 1944 they moved there permanently and stayed until 1949.
During this time, Moskowitz received a Guggenheim fellowship (in 1943). While Moskowitz devoted much of his life to the production of Judaic art, his New Mexico period was especially productive of other work. His New Mexico art consists mostly of "Regionalist" subjects depicting both the New Mexico landscape and life within the state's three cultures. He especially focused on pueblo life. He and Anna also visited and sketched across the border in Old Mexico. While in the Southwest, Moskowitz flourished as a printmaker, yet continued to produce oils and watercolors as well.
After leaving the Southwest, printmaking remained a major part of his life and art. But his focus drastically changed as to subject. Later works of Moskowitz depict religious (Judaic) subjects primarily. These works were well received early on and Moskowitz was content to stay with them the rest of his life.
From 1963 until 1966 Moskowitz lived in Paris. He then returned in 1967 to New York City where he made his permanent home (with intermittent sojourns) until he died there in 2001.  Shortly before his death, Zaplin-Lampert Gallery of Santa Fe staged a year 2000-01 exhibition of Ira's works.
