  Otto Henry Bacher   (1856-1909)

 
  SAILING TOY YACHTS IN CENTRAL PARK, March 1888. Andrew, Miscellaneous #15. [Alternate title: BOYS SAILING BOATS.] Signed and dated in the plate. Printed in brown-black ink on etching paper. Late 19th century images of New York City's Central Park are uncommon, and I've never seen another etching of this wonderful childhood activity. Judging by the figures and the quality of the model boats, this is not an activity for the children of the poor. This is a scarce etching, in excellent condition.
 
 
  Etching: plate, 9 x 11 1/2; image, 7 1/4 x 9 7/8 inches. SOLD.
