  Charles Adams Platt   (1861-1933)

 
  THE LITTLE RIVER, HARTFORD, 1881. Rice 18. Signed, dated, numbered ""19," and titled in the plate. This is a small tributary, probably into the Connecticut River, with a neighborhood of old wooden houses reflected in the placid water along both shores. Laundry hangs on lines between buildings, people are pursuing their daily activities as two men prepare to go fishing in a small rowboat, and the large, imposing dome of the Connecticut state house is seen beyond the bridge that crosses the river. This is the only impression I've ever had of this etching, and I think it's one of Platt's most admirable on many counts. A rich impression in wonderful condition.
