  Charles Adams Platt   (1861-1933)

  DIEPPE, 1887. Rice 89. Signed in pencil. This is the published state, printed on fine laid paper, and signed and dated in the plate. "Dieppe" demonstrates Platt's increasingly Whistlerian handling of the medium. In very fine condition. After a decade of success as a painter-etcher, Platt went on to great success as an architect, designing many fine private homes and several public buildings, the best known of these being the Freer Gallery in Washington, DC. HIs career is documented in Morgan, "Shaping an American Landscape: The Art & Architecture of Charles A. Platt," Hood Art Museum, Dartmouth, NH, 1995.
