  Otto Henry Bacher   (1856-1909)

 
  THREE SHIPS, 1880. Andrew, Venice set #30, second state. (Alternate title: "Vessels.") Signed in pencil and printed in brown ink on wove Japan paper. Behind the tall ships (which are a reminder of Venice's earlier importance as a commercial port), the Riva and the Doge's Palace are glimpsed in this view across the Grand Canal made from either the Salute or S. Giorgio. This print was reproduced as the frontispiece for Bacher's book, With Whistler in Venice, 1908. It was titled there as "A View from Whistler's Window" (a title Bacher later assigned to a different print).
 
 
  Etching, 6 3/4" x 5 3/4". SOLD.
