  Joseph Pennell   (1857-1926)

 
  LANDING PLACE, LEGHORN [Livorno], 1883. Wuerth 65. Signed in pencil by Pennell in his early florid 19th century hand, and inscribed, possibly in another hand, "To Frederick Paul Keppel/Paris 1893." This is a richly inked impression of a very uncommon etching by Pennell, the only one I have seen for sale in 25 years. The dimensions given in Wuerth may be incorrect, since the impression at the Library of Congress, printed on "official Tuscan paper," is 17 x 19 cm. and was donated to them directly by Pennell. A rich impression in fine condition.
 
 
  Etching, 6 5/8 x 7 1/8 inches. SOLD.
