Barney Reid "Flounder" Etched Copper Plate

Item: “Flounder”

Artist/Designer: Barney Reid – earned his masters in lithography at the State University of Iowa. Reid moved to San Diego about 1950, after teaching at ASU from 1946-49, and went into business selling screen-printed fabrics. Renowned for his enamel work, he was a consummate craftsman, and worked in metal, clay, wood, marble and other media. A member of the Allied Craftsmen and the San Diego Art Guild, Reid was employed as a graphic designer by the U. S. Navy. From the late 70’s until his demise, he worked in printmaking almost exclusively.

Description: An original etched copper plate from the period in which Reid collaborated with the GrapiCenter at Orr’s Gallery to publish his prints. The amazing detail on this rare etching reveals Reid’s technical mastery as he turned his attention back to printmaking and the intaglio process in particular. Signed. Small flounder print included.
