    Awkward Squads Studying the Graces

    A framed, hand-colored etching by Thomas Rowlandson after G. M. Woodward, published by Thomas Tegg. Six comic, caricatured society types are cajoled and corrected by French dancing masters into performing the steps of a fashionable new dance. By the late 18th Century the term 'awkward squad' had passed from military cant into common usage as a description of a group of raw recruits incapable of understanding discipline or not yet sufficiently trained or disciplined to properly carry out their duties. Here Rowlandson, in one of his favourite recurring themes, lampoons the modish aspirations of the would-be fashionable set as they are 'drilled' by their hired dancing masters.

    Autumn by Abraham Rattner, Verve Vol. 1 / No. 3.

    The Verve Review was a purposefully luxurious. It ran from 1937 to 1960, but with only 38 editions available, due to the high degree of design and editorial work dedicated to each issue. Each edition contained unique lithographic prints, commissioned by the editor, and each cover a double-page lithograph elaborated by one of the artists contained within. It was the brainchild of its editor Stratis Eleftheriades, a Greek National who moved to Paris in the early thirties to take part in the growing Modernist movement, writing under the name of Teriade.
