  Otto Henry Bacher   (1856-1909)

  VIA GARIBALDI, 1880. Andrew, Venice set 20. Signed in pencil, and printed on chine collé, On the Library of Congress proof, Bacher wrote: "Via Garibaldi, plate destroyed, very rare." Bacher worked on etching with Whistler when "Duveneck's boys," along with Whistler and Maude, all lived at the Casa Jankowitz, at the end of the Riva degli Schiavoni, near the Via Garibaldi. The Via Garibaldi is at the beginning of the Rio de Sta. Anna in the Castello district at the eastern end of Venice. Part of the canal has been filled in because the water has risen too high for boats to pass under the bridge. This is a fine impression of a rare print.
  Etching, 7 7/8 x 6 3/4 inches. SOLD.
