Tragically, the artist who so loved to capture the expressions of life, died prematurely of a heart attack in 1954 at the age of fifty-six. Since his intaglio plates themselves had the ability to yield more impressions, and it was Marsh’s desire to have the widest distribution possible, his widow Felicia Marsh authorized the Whitney Museum to produce a posthumous printing of a select set of her husband’s work. Choosing 30 plates, the Whitney worked with master printers Anderson and Lamb to print a limited run of 100 impressions of each. The Whitney Edition showcases a careful cross section of Marsh’s main interests and presents a record of those subjects which most moved him to be a passionate observer of the human experience.
