  William Harry Warren Bicknell   (1860-1947)

  PORTRAIT OF SYLVESTER ROSA KOEHLER, 1912.. Signed in pencil, printed on fine Japan paper. Library of Congress #9. Koehler was the print curator at the National Museum (later the Smithsonian) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. German born and trained, he was the patron saint of the American Etching Revival, the editor of the American Art Review, and the prime mover in developing the taste for fine art prints in the United States. Although this etching was made in 1912, I have entered it in the 19th century listings since that was the sphere of Koehler's great influence. An wonderful portrait in fine condition.
  Etching, 4 1/2 x 3 3/8 inches. $350.
