Country Scene with Man Walking - MARTIN LEWIS - etching and drypoint

American, (1881-1962)

Etching and drypoint, circa 1915, McCarron 6, edition listed as 1 recorded impression. 9 x 10 1/2 in. Signed in the plate, lower right. Signed in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on laid paper with light plate tone. The margins are wide and the condition is good. There's a suggestion of toning showing within an early mat opening and a faintly darkened area in the tree branches at left. The one impression listed and illustrated in the catalogue by McCarron is in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts. This is the second recorded impression of this early print and there are no listed auction records to indicate any other impressions. This exceedingly rare early print is indicative of the artist's emerging skills as a printmaker.      SOLD
