Artists Judging Works of Art. 1916. Lithograph. Mason 18. 14 1/2 x 19 (sheet 18 3/4 x 26 7/8). Edition aproximately 52. A rich impression printed on Japanese mulberry paper, on the full sheet with deckle edges. This is a fine lifetime impression. Provenance: H.V. Allison and Co. Inc., New York; Chapellier Galleries, Inc, New York; Galleries Marcus Steinberg, Chicago. Gift W to a Texas collector. Signed and annotated 'No. 25' in pencil by the artist. Housed in a 29 x 33 1/2-inch reproduction gold leaf period frame. Price upon request.

Bellows places a bottle with the word "proof" in the lower center of the image. The pun is on alcohol as well as a lithographic proof.

Bellows wrote, "The result of a young artist's first service on an official jury. For fear of offense none of the 'likenesses' will be painted out. They are whoever they are."

The catalogue of Bellows' lithographs states, "The setting is probably the National Arts Club. Bellows pictured himself as the observer in the upper right, in this satirical comment on the contemporary art world. His friend, Robert Henri, is possibly the figure seated in the shadow, right foreground.

A drawing that appeared in The Masses, April 1915, titled 'Jury Duty' closely resembles this lithograph."
