Print Fair Follow-Up -- Peggy Bacon Featured

This year at the New York Print Fair we featured a collection under the Peggy Bacon & Circle banner.  On November 4 Andrew Raftery put our Bacons among The Top Ten Prints at the IFPDA in his Art in America blog article. Referring to the Bacons, both titled Alone in a Crowd, 1951, he wrote that “Teller has mounted a focused show based on two prints by the satirist Peggy Bacon....Bacon’s satire is poignant and effect and witty.”

Raftery noted the related pieces by her "New York peers in social satire" including Isabel Bishop, Minna Citron, Reginald Marsh, and Marguerite Zorach.
