Price: $800.00

Jackson Lee Nesbitt (AM 1913-2008) – Plate Mill – Etching, 1938, ed. 60, 8 7/8 x 11 ¾, signed, titled, numbered and dated in pencil. This piece is in excellent condition.

“In 1937 Sheffield Steel Corporation commissioned Nesbitt to make etching of their workers in action. This proved to be a pivotal point in Nesbitt’s career because it provided him with opportunity and experience to draw powerful portraits of American workers in dramatic industrial settings. In the most successful Sheffield etchings, Nesbitt’s fiery imagery transports us into an environment of blinding light and intense heat almost real enough to raise sweat on the brow”.
