Description

Charlot did a pair of lithographs on a zinc plate in 1929 in New York, working with Master Printer George C. Miller. The images, "Lutz Seated" (facing left) and "Lutz Seated" (facing right) were printed on a single sheet of paper that was cut down to create two separate prints.

There were a total of 30 impressions pulled, 10 in the second state and 20 in the third state for a total of 30. This image was one of the first lithographs Charlot did in 1929 in the United States.

Charlot noted in his diary on July 7, 1929: "A very small litho. Luz seated, from picture painted June 19" and "August 9. Pull proofs...the two little lithos Luz."
