Brooklyn Bridge at Night -  PENNELL

Brooklyn Bridge at Night
Aquatint, 1922, Wuerth 790, edition probably 60. 7 3/8 x 8 5/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression of this uncommon print. The margins appear to be full and the condition is excellent. This stellar work was done in pure aquatint without any etched lines. He produced a few aquatints of New York and London and he referred to these tonal works as "printed paintings." The artist was living in Brooklyn at the time.

Mist on the Thames -  PENNELL

Mist on the Thames
Aquatint, 1903, Wuerth 247, edition probably 35 proofs. 8 1/2 x 10 3/8 in. Signed and numbered in pencil "32." The margins are probably full and untrimmed and the condition is fine. The paper is a soft, fairly thin laid. This uncommon, beautiful print was done the year Whistler died. It's a subject which reminds us of Whistler, certainly, and the painterly, tonal effects are also reminiscent of Whistler's watercolors and oils of the Thames.
