Woodbine (Parthenocissus quinquefolia). 1937. Drypoint with hand coloring. Jaques 425. 11 x 7 1/4 (sheet 14 1/2 x 10 1/2). Printed on tissue paper. Provenance: the artist's estate. Signed and titled in pencil. This is probably what Bertha Jaques termed a "ghost" or "phantom" print. It is a second pull from the plate without reinking it. The result is a delicate, ethereal image. $450.

Woodbine is a handsome, hardy member of the grape family. One of its common names is “five-fingered ivy”, for the 5 leaflets of its compound leaf. In full sun, it produces dark blue-purple fruit that clearly reflex its grape heritage and contrast beautifully with its red stems
