Down Hill - West 152nd Street - CHILDE HASSAM
Etching, 1931, Cortisson / Clayton 343, edition unknown. 6 x 4 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed and titled in pencil with the added inscription,"proof selected for Mrs. Lowinson by Childe Hassam." Here we have a superb, luminous impression of this very rare print. Done from a 1921 drawing, boys are shown playing marbles on the street and the background shows a view of the Hudson and the Palisades. The margins are full and the condition is fine. Frieda Lowinson was a prominent collector of Hassam prints and her stamp is on the verso (not in Lugt).
