OWEN, ROBERT EMMETT. Leslie's Monthly, Martinique Disaster, July 1902. Measures about 14.5x23 inches or 36x59cm, with linen back adding another 2 inches to all sides, advertising Leslie's magazine. The artist (1878-1957) is largely remembered as a painter of rural New Hampshire life, but here he took on commercial work, creating a spectacular image to plug a news story about the Martinique volcano disaster of 1902. Condition of this print: It's darkened with age but otherwise has been brought up to fine quality by a professional conservator, who repaired short tears at the edges. The linen-backing process caused some slight bleeding of the red coloration.
