Discovered in the Stevens archives are a variety of extremely rare prints created by the artist. Unlike most printmakers, Stevens produced very few copies of his prints. He did not “farm” these out for others to produce for him. In most cases, he created a maximum of five of each print. In some cases, there is only one copy known to exist. Stevens prints excel in all of the critical elements that appeal to sophisticated collectors: artistry, quality, condition, rarity, authenticity, and provenance!
The Stevens prints include pieces from the early 1920s. Among them are prints he created while a Fellow at the Tiffany Foundation at Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. These, along with oil paintings Stevens created there, were collected by Louis Comfort Tiffany’s chauffeur.
The print collection also includes pieces created while Stevens was a Fellow at the American Academy in Rome (1922-1925), and those created during a stay in Morocco in 1928.
