New York # 1 - WILLIAM MEYEROWITZ
Etching, circa 1920, edition 40. 12x 9 7/8 in. Signed in pencil. Titled in pencil below possibly in another hand and with an annotation of "5/40." Here we have a fine impression printed on cream wove paper. The margins are substantial and possibly trimmed.
The condition is fine apart from a subtle smudge or two outside of the platemark, upper right corner. Born in Russia, the artist came to this country in 1908. He studied at the National Academy of Design from 1912-1916. He was fully involved in the New York art scene and produced a small group of modernist skyscraper views which are among his best work. He also worked as an innovator in the color etching technique.
