After serving in the US Army in WWII, Robert Shalkop studied at Maryville College in Tennessee before earning his Master of Arts at the University of Chicago and then pursuing postgraduate work at the Sorbonne in Paris. He was an archeologist, curator, and assistant director for several institutions including the Smithsonian Institution, the Brooks Memorial Art Gallery in Memphis, TN, and the Taylor Museum of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. He served as director of the Anchorage Museum of History and Art from 1972 until his retirement in 1987. Mr. Shalkop then moved to Salisbury, NC where he offered his expertise as a museum consultant. The range of items presented in this auction display the depth and breadth of Mr. Shalkop's collecting interests.
A very nice, detailed impression.
Some toning and scattered foxing hardly visible as framed; sheet hinged to matting; two minute pinholes near left and right edges (possibly from artist hanging); very small edge tear (approx. 1/8 in.).
