  Joseph Pennell   (1857-1926)

 
  BRIDGE AT HARRISBURG [Pennsylvania], 1882. Wuerth 40. Signed in pencil: "Jo Pennell imp./ Mr Grant's proof." Signed and dated in the plate. This strange old wooden bridge is delineated with rushing perspective in the Japanese manner. The print was exhibited at the NY Etching Club in 1882. Even at this early stage of his career, Pennell worked this plate with sandpaper, roulette, drypoint, and elaborate wiping, and he later became a teacher and leader in American printmaking. This is a very rare print, and is in excellent condition.
